what is equipping?

Being equipped to turn your beliefs into action is one of the most important things you will ever do.  It is your response to what Christ has done for you with faith AND obedience.  In order for Jesus to come alive in us, it is necessary that we die to ourselves. (Luke 9:23) This is a lifelong journey every Christian goes through.  John 8:31 says "To the Jews who had believed him, Jesus said, 'If you hold to my teaching, you are really my disciples."  At Connection, we believe one of the best ways to hold to the teachings of Jesus is through periods of intentional discipleship.  During this time you are seeking to grow in your knowledge of the Lord though accountability and training as well as making yourself vulnerable to the Holy Spirit to do His work in your life.  We then will be able to apply the Lord's teachings to our lives in an actionable response. If we are to make disciples, we must first be disciples. (Matthew 28:18-20) If you would like to learn more about discipleship, or are interested in being discipled, please contact us so we can help guide you on your journey.
