Discipleship Scale

As you know, people are at different stages in their journey with Jesus. Some are brand new to the faith while others are further along. For that reason, we have provided a Discipleship Scale in an attempt to indicate the depth of each study. You will find that rating below each study title.

We hope this helps you!

Example of a New Christian: A person who has recently followed Jesus as Lord. This person does not know much about Jesus, the Bible, the Church, personal gifts, etc.

Example of a Mature Christian: A person who knows Jesus, prays regularly, gives of his/her gifts, invests in others, etc.
