WHAT IS DISCIPLESHIP?
The word disciple is the greek word 'mathetes', literally translated 'to follow'. Therefore, it is much more than simply a student or pupil. A disciple is someone who adheres to and conforms to the teachings of another, making it their way of life. This is why to follow Jesus is sometimes referred to as The Way (John 14:6, Acts 22:4, Acts 19:23, Acts 24:14). Quite simply, discipleship is community and community is discipleship.
WHAT IS A GOSPEL COMMUNITY?
A gospel community are the smaller groups of people within and around Anthem Church that meet regularly throughout the week. These smaller concentric circles of community exist as the primary vehicle for discipleship at Anthem. Gospel Communities meet regularly, in different homes around the county, aspiring to be the family that God expects of us. We live life together, by God's grace, enjoying one another, studying the Bible, and sent out on mission, all in an effort to Make Jesus Known to each other and our culture.
what does community look like WITH COVID?
Our current season and the restrictions that come along with it has led us to reimagine what healthy, vibrant, biblical community looks like. For the foreseeable future, community and discipleship at Anthem will be largely facilitated through men's, women's, and student ministry.
