Radiant Church is a church that is passionate about discipleship! Our focus is not a quantity of disciples... but rather a quality of discipleship! It is our hope as disciples of Jesus Christ, that we would grow to maturity and resemble our Lord.
First, a Disciple is a person who Worships Christ.
To worship Christ, you must know Jesus and trust Him as your only hope of salvation. People who worship Christ will have the desire to connect with God and others who love Him. Every disciple of Jesus Christ will worship Him with every aspect of their life (Romans 12:1-2). Our weekend service provides a great opportunity to worship corporately with other disciples through the preaching of God's Word, giving, singing, prayer, and fellowship.
Second, a Disciple is a person who Walks with Christ.
Once people begin to worship Christ, they realize their need to walk with Christ and make a commitment to spiritual growth and maturity. The best place for this to happen is in the context of small groups. In a small group you will develop significant relationships with others who can encourage and challenge you to consistently apply the truths of God's Word to each area of your life (Ephesians 5:1-20).
Third, a Disciple is a person who Works for Christ.
When people walk with Christ, they desire to work for Christ by contributing their gifts and abilities to the building up of the church. There will be many opportunities for you to serve at Radiant Church. We believe the disciples of Jesus should minister to one another in the local church, rather than one or a small number of professional pastors bearing total responsibility to care for the entire congregation. God has given spiritual gifts to all of His people to work for Him in the context of a healthy local church (Ephesians 4:11-12).
However, a disciple that works for Christ in the church must also work for Christ outside of the church. The greatest way that this can take place is through evangelism. Radiant Church believes that every member of the body is called to full-time ministry in their sphere of influence (family, work, school, neighborhood, hobbies, etc.). Every part of a Christian's life is an opportunity to work for Christ and His glory (1 Corinthians 10.33; Matthew 5:13-16).
