“Love and Obey”
by Pastor Aaron Graves
For men and women, ages 14 – 100
Are you seeking accountability, fellowship or encouragement in your walk with Christ?
Would you benefit from the wisdom and counsel of a mature believer?
Are you seeking to follow Jesus, to grow in your faith and knowledge of Him?
Discipleship at GBC is the partnering of a believer with a spiritually mature man or woman for the purpose of spiritual mentoring and encouraging him/her to a deeper walk with the Lord through accountability, fellowship, Bible study and prayer.
2 Peter 3:18a – “But grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.”
Titus 2:1-8 – “But as for you, teach what accords with sound doctrine. Older men are to be sober-minded, dignified, self-controlled, sound in faith, in love, and in steadfastness. Older women likewise are to be reverent in behavior, not slanderers or slaves to much wine. They are to teach what is good,and so train the young women to love their husbands and children, to be self-controlled, pure, working at home, kind, and submissive to their own husbands, that the word of God may not be reviled. Likewise, urge the younger men to be self-controlled. Show yourself in all respects to be a model of good works, and in your teaching show integrity, dignity, and sound speech that cannot be condemned, so that an opponent may be put to shame, having nothing evil to say about us.”
Matthew 28:19-20 – “Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age.”
Hebrews 10:24-25 – “And let us consider how to stir up one another to love and good works, not neglecting to meet together, as is the habit of some, but encouraging one another, and all the more as you see the Day drawing near.”
Ecclesiastes 4:9-10 – “Two are better than one, because they have a good reward for their toil. For if they fall, one will lift up his fellow. But woe to him who is alone when he falls and has not another to lift him up!”
If interested, complete the enclosed form and put in the box in the Foyer or turn it into the office and you will be paired with a spiritually mature believer. (Note: it may take time to determine the best match).
You can choose to meet monthly, bi-weekly, weekly or whatever works best for you both.
