The Great Commission records Jesus’ instruction to us to GO MAKE disciples and to GO TEACH them to follow him. We hold evangelism and discipleship closely together. And we trust Jesus to be WITH US as he promised in this crucial work of transforming lives for his kingdom.
BLESS is a new approach to prayer and evangelism. It’s less about downloading information or memorizing scripts, and more about loving our neighbours well. It helps us get “unstuck” and practice evangelism more effortlessly. Using five simple missional practices, BLESS is an intentional pathway to equip every Covenanter to make more disciples who follow Jesus, become like Jesus, and engage in the mission of Jesus every day.
Discipleship never comes down to one event or one program – it is about walking more closely with Jesus Christ. He is our Master Teacher and we are his apprentices for life. The ECCC continues to build on our long history of making and deepening disciples. Our annual events, Bible camps, and CBC Legacy Scholarships, are all ways we partner together to make and deepen disciples.
One recent initiative created by the ECC is Immerse. This six-volume, specially-formatted Bible was created with one goal in mind: to provide the best Bible reading experience possible. The text is laid out in single-column setting with chapters, verses, section headings, and footnotes removed, and with the content of each book displayed according to its literary genre. Reading through the Immerse Bibles can be done together as a church congregation, or may be used for individual study.
A wide variety of Evangelism and Discipleship resources and initiatives are available on the ECC Make & Deepen Disciples Page.
