Why Discipleship?

St Mary’s is committed to helping church members become better disciples of Jesus. This simply means seeking to become better followers and imitators of Jesus; living as Jesus would live and seeking his kingdom, his rule, in every area of our lives. We believe that effective discipleship creates the church and not the other way around.

Being a follower of Jesus, a disciple, has never been easy. Jesus' teaching is radical and countercultural and so we need the help of God’s Holy Spirit to grow as disciples. We also need together to explore the truth contained in Scripture and seek to apply it to our everyday lives. We believe that living as a disciple of Jesus is the best way to live and leads to a fullness of life that cannot be found any other way.
