Last Week, we got together for Week 10 of 12 in our “Make Disciples.” series. Below you will find links to an overview of the full 12 weeks and for the tenth area on the map, Experiencing God’s Power: Spiritual Fruit.
During the 12 weeks, we are addressing areas on a comprehensive discipleship map. After discussing each area, we will try to establish Milestones that would provide evidence of personal spiritual growth – markers that we work toward.
We are united to Christ; the living stones are joined to the cornerstone. In that way the church becomes the true house of God. Peter’s language is corporate. He thinks of the spiritual temple, not as the body of an individual believer, but as the body of believers, the company of those who are joined to Christ.

The Book of Acts
Jesus told his followers that they were to make disciples of all the nations, but their movement was still marginal, even within Judaism. One big step in the gospel’s advancement is narrated for us in Acts 10.
