DISCIPLESHIP

Discipleship at F.A.R.M. is based on the F.A.R.M. Purpose for Being

First Assembly Roxas Missions, Inc. exists  to make disciples of all people by causing them to seek Christ, know Christ, grow in Christ, serve Christ and share Christ to the community and the world.

`Making disciples’  is  a process.  It  takes  a process to turn people  `of the world’ into `obedient people of God’.   A process involves well defined  steps, has a definite beginning and ending. Specific  developments occur  as  it  progresses.  To journey through a process would also mean commitments. A process is not just programs , not just activities, not just   teaching lessons; but will include all of these. It requires a lot of deliberate effort. And  great commission states where the process starts with: in people who are not yet `in the church’ – `all people’.

Colossians 1:28-29 We proclaim him, admonishing and teaching everyone with all wisdom, so that we may present everyone perfect in Christ.  29To this end I labor, struggling with all his energy, which so powerfully works in me.

Discipleship at  F.A.R.M. is a  Moving Experience

A journey towards increasing levels of commitment to the Lord Jesus Christ and His church.

Discipleship at FARM is  an assimilation Process

`Moving Experience’ as a discipleship process  describes the assimilation of a non-committed person from the community into a committed disciple who goes back to the community to bring in another into the discipleship cycle.

One comment on “DISCIPLESHIP

  1. Dear Ptr. Rey & Ptr. Zeny,
    Greetings in the name of the Lord. During PAGHANAS, God was able to show me big and great things through your ministry. I was praying before to God asking Him to give a group of people who are honest doing His work. I am so thankful to met the both of you. Every session during Paghanas i went to restroom to praise God and thanking Him for showing me the way.
    I am a pastor of a very small church, i handle it for almost one year and six months. I can say i have done a lot of mistakes and thank God i can start all over again.
    We do our service in a small house and i know someday God will give me a shurch building that people will go becasue they know that God is there just like yours.
    One thing i learn from you Ptr. rey that i will keep till my last breath of serving our God is to stay humble in all the blessing and possion that our God will entrust to me.
    And to you Ptr. zeny to be systematic and make sure that very detailed is done properly for we are serving the Most High God.
    i thank God for all of you. I will finish my Bachelor here in Lubic this coming march and i hope that you Ptr. will be our Guest speaker.
    Ptr. Rey i will never forget your word to me saying “i believe in you” during that time i heard the voice of God it’s looked like God saying to me that He believe on me.
    I though nobody will notice my pottential si tatay Arnold pa ang nagbigay sa akin ng chance. This S.O.S he trained me as Intern FD praise God.
    Ang saya ko po talaga. If God’s permit me next year po madami kaming magaaral diyan sa BEREAN.
    i know God will used all of us to SATURATE THE WORLD.
    Praise God po talaga!

    Respectfully yours,
