Discipleship

New To MRBC

 MRBC is a church built on the five biblical purposes of worship, ministry, evangelism, fellowship, and discipleship. Our goal is to help everyone understand and apply each of these purposes in their lives.


By definition, a Christian disciple is a person who accepts and assists in the spreading of the good news of Jesus Christ.
  • Christian discipleship is the process by which disciples grow in the Lord Jesus Christ and are equipped by the Holy Spirit, who resides in our hearts, to overcome the pressures and trials of this present life and become more and more Christlike.
  • This process requires believers to respond to the Holy Spirit’s prompting to examine their thoughts, words and actions and compare them with the Word of God.
  • This requires that we be in the Word daily—studying it, praying over it, and obeying it.
  • In addition, we should always be ready to give testimony of the reason for the hope that is within and to disciple others to walk in His way.
God wants you to take your next step spiritually. That could mean getting baptized, committing to digging into the Bible each day, discovering how God wants to use you to help others, or just learning more about God’s plan for your life. MRBC discipleship is all about those next steps.
