The goal of the Christian life is not just heaven, but a call to join God’s global purposes. Discover a simple Spiritual Pathway to lead you along the road to greater missional living. Learn what it means to Belong, Become the person God designed you to be, and go Beyond in the world for the glory of God.
Next Step Discipleship is a personal and small group handbook for
walking the pathway to greater missional impact.


Next Step Discipleship explores 3 important aspects of the Christian life: connection, transformation and mission:

What does it mean for the disciple to BELONG to Jesus Christ, biblical community and their church?

How does the disciple BECOME more like Jesus through intentional transformation? What does life-change really look like?

Where does the disciple go BEYOND to share Jesus in their church, their neighborhood and their world? What motivates mission and how can the Christian make an impact for the glory of God?



Next Step Church is designed to equip pastors around the world as they lead their churches. Presently, this volume is translated into Spanish, Tamil (India) and Kirundi (Africa) languages. This is Central Bible Church's contribution to training those who have little or no formal theological or ministry resources. Purchase a copy of Next Step Discipleship or Next Step Church and you will underwrite a free copy for a pastor or church planter around the world.
