‘The plural of disciple is church’

Mathetes is the New Testament word for ‘disciple’, and The Mathetes Trust exists to help
promote a culture of discipleship and disciple-making within the local church.
Learning to love God and love one another
Learning to live as Jesus lived
Learning to pray as Jesus prayed
Learning to minister to others in the power of the Spirit
Learning to proclaim the gospel in word and deed
