D1 Biblical Foundation
One of our core values is ‘Intentional Discipleship’. Our Lord Jesus not only instructed us in the Great Commission to go and make disciples, but was also very intentional in modeling ‘discipleship’ throughout the gospels. Therefore, we are committed to ‘intentionally’ discipling others! One of the ways we do that is through our periodic, 16-week D1 class. Our desire for Applewood is that everyone is discipled. We believe that discipleship is the foundation for properly equipping the believer. Therefore, we want to equip our disciples with a doctrinally sound biblical foundation, while simultaneously applying God’s Word to their lives. Lastly, D1 provides biblical tools to disciple others.
D1 is a systematic approach over 16 lessons. Many that have completed this class have commented on how it has changed their lives! We believe discipleship is a vital part of the Great Commission (Matt. 28:19-20; Acts 1:8).
We believe that discipleship is the vital link that grows and equips each believer to become more effective in the entire Great Commission. This encourages and equips the body to grow and be conformed to the image of Jesus Christ.
