Small Groups of Discipleship

A small group of discipleship in GBU, is a setting where gather not more than 7 students (disciples) who are learning from a mature Christian (disciple maker). The disciple maker aims at nurturing the disciples into mature Disciples of Christ using the Bible Study through relational links.

"All authority has been given to Me in heaven and earth. Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age." -- Jesus Christ (Mt.28:18-20)

Jesus spoke the words above to His disciples, just days after He had risen from the dead. We commonly call these words "The Great Commission." In this charge, Jesus commands all His people of all time to their great task - that of making disciples. If you have turned from sin to trust Christ fully, then you are a Christian, and by definition, a follower of Jesus Christ. The goal of small groups of discipleship in GBU, is to help you become a fully devoted follower of Christ.

You will notice that the process of making disciples includes "teaching them to observe all that I commanded you." Becoming a Christian is more than just believing the right truths about God. It also involves a reshaping of the entire person into the image of Jesus Christ. A small group can provide the training and encouragement its members need to be faithful witnesses, who can teach others.
