10 steps to fruitful discipleship
“Go and make disciples of all nations” became the war cry of the church throughout the last two thousand years. Today we have institutionalized everything supposedly to make it more efficient and multiply the results. The results have quenched the personal initiatives and responsibilities for disciplining those who come to Christ. The institution of the church programs and seminaries are supposedly taking care of that ministry. Today few have been discipled and fewer have any plan to help new believer become disciples. This book is written as a tool to help believers develop their personal ministry of making disciples. Nothing is more exciting.
Ten Steps of Discipleship came out of an evangelistic ministry in Latin America to solidify new converts to evangelical Christianity. It is written in an inter-active, fill-in-the-blank format that helps the new believer to think through the meaning and implications of core Bible verses on which to build their Christian life. Each lesson ends with a summary of new concepts that become excellent talking points for discipling encounters.

1. Understand the gospel
2. Rest in the security of the believer
