To The Churches – What Is A Disciple?

TTC-thumbnail-v2

[display_podcast] From Gary Avant, President and Lead Coach of To The Churches: There is a lot of misunderstanding about the term “discipleship”. The word “disciple” is used 297 times throughout the New Testament. The word “Christian” is used three times.

[display_podcast]From Dewey Bertolini, Pastor of The Safe Haven in McMinnville, OR My heart goes out to Jesus. After preparing for this week's PODCAST, I feel such a profound sense of compassion for Him. The thing of it is... I knew that the religious leaders of Jesus’ day hated Him. I understood that at this point in His ministry they no longer regarded Him as an irritation to be tolerated or a troublesome teacher to be discredited.

Meeting People Head On Thumbnail

Last time, I shared what the Bible says about how to become a Christian. But, how can we be assured that if we put our faith in Jesus Christ to be the Savior of the world, that He personally came and died for you to pay your penalty of death for your sin, so that you could have His righteousness – the Bible clearly says that you could be assured that if you were to die today, you would have eternal life and be with God forever. And that’s an assurance that’s worth more than all the money in … [Read more...]
