Jesus’ parting challenge to the church as he ascended into heaven (Matthew 28:19-20) was for us to go and make DISCIPLES. Disciples of Jesus are made, not born. Disciples result from a deliberate process of skill training and spiritual formation that brings a follower of Jesus to a higher plane of spiritual dedication and loyalty.
At McLean Bible Church, we’re not here to build a monument to ourselves. We’re not here to build “Solomon’s Temple.” We’re here to see people not only make a decision for Jesus Christ, but then to go on and become true men and women of God.
This is how we measure our success at McLean Bible Church. We don’t measure success by the physical size of our building or the amount of the offerings or the number of people on our staff. We measure success by the quality of disciples we build for Jesus Christ.
