The critical need of the Church today is for spiritual depth and authenticity. It has been rightly lamented that although we have the largest Church in history, we also have the shallowest! Doing supersedes being. Goals supersede growth. Accomplishment supersedes authenticity.
Many local churches include the terms “making disciples” or “disciple-making” in their mission statements. However, few go beyond mere rhetoric to actually engage in international disciple-making. Fewer still have an established track record of reproducing disciples of spiritual depth and maturity.
Real spiritual depth can only come about when we return to the biblical blueprint of authentic discipleship and intentional disciple-making in the local church!
We thank God for strong, vibrant churches. However, for every strong church, there exists many weak and struggling churches. Something must be done about this! Let’s join hands and work together!
