Followers of Jesus do what Jesus did and said to do.
Matthew 28:18-20 “Then Jesus came close to them and said,
“All the authority of the universe has been given to me.
Now go in my authority and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. And teach them to faithfully follow all that I have commanded you.
And never forget that I am with you every day, even to the completion of this age.”
Here are some of the ways you can find people who will teach you to do all that Jesus asked his disciples to do.

3. DISCIPLE MAKING MOVEMENTS:
Disciple making movements tend to involve radical discipleship – lives surrendered to be Spirit -led to release the Kingdom on earth. Disciples of Jesus share the gospel and pray for people to be healed and they take the new followers of Jesus with them to do the same. When we are bringing many to Christ, it is often easier to disciple them in a ‘simple church’ wineskin – without having to integrate them through a long process of religious culture orientation. Disciple making movements have clear teaching, equipping and releasing processes so new followers can quickly implement what they are taught and so groups/simple churches can quickly multiply to accommodate new disciples.

4. MULTIPLYING SIMPLE GROUPS
Many of the disciple making movements have adopted simple forms of ‘church’ – gathering locally and relationally in homes etc- to minimise investing time & finance in religious activity and be freed to reach out to love their neighbours. When we meet in a missional communities we are modelling the focus of being disciple makers. It is easier to integrate new followers of Jesus into simple local groups and they are easily reproducible.
God is providing the new wine skin of simple home groups to hide believers who are under persecution.
