discipleship classes

"Study to show yourself approved by God, a workman who need not be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth."  ~2 Timothy 2:15

Discipleship is a journey of intentional decisions leading to maturity in your relationship with Jesus so that you become more like Him in your attitudes, focus, and lifestyle. It requires a commitment and is a lifelong commitment to follow God with your whole self and to both learn from and eventually teach others about how to follow Him.  At Hampstead Baptist, we seek to be a resource to come alongside each other in drawing closer to God through various discipleship opportunities like those listed below.

Defined literally, a disciple is someone who follows someone else; namely, in Christianity, a disciple is one who follows Jesus.  What does that look like? Well, discipleship in practice is not literal, as Jesus doesn't physically walk on the earth anymore.  On social media, one "follows" certain people, celebrities, teachers, groups, etc.  Why? People follow their interests, their curiosities, their loves.  There's a seemingly never-ending scroll of information about most any topic, what about "following" Jesus? Following Jesus is much more than scrolling through a newsfeed, though one does choose to follow Jesus because of the same reasons-- interest, curiosity, and love (among others). More importantly and specifically, a disciple models his or her life after the one whom they're "following."  What Jesus taught, a disciple wants to learn.  What Jesus did, a disciple also wants to do.  Discipleship is the process of becoming a disciple-- a process that begins the moment one first believes and lasts forever.
