Series Emphasis: Christ is King. The gospel is a message about the King and the present availability of life in His Kingdom for those who believe and follow Him. To these He gives the power to become children of the King. The church is the family of God gathered, a training ground where the King's children are equipped to be His Ambassadors, as well as an outpost of the Kingdom across the globe. The mission of every Kingdom citizen is to become like the King taking His life-giving message to the world as we live and love like Him.

"The GOSPEL we preach determines the DISCIPLE we make."
-- Bill Hull
KBC VIRAL DEFINITION: The Gospel is God's offer of a restored relationship with Him as a child of the King, made possible through His Son Jesus Christ's death, burial and resurrection, which is now available to anyone who will trust and follow Jesus.
DISCIPLESHIP TO CHRIST JESUS: is our commitment to Follow Him!
KBC VIRAL DEFINITION: A Disciple is a fully surrendered, fully submitted apprentice to Jesus, who learns from Him as the Master of life, communicates with Him through the Word and Prayer, and works with Him in the Father's kingdom, bringing His Grace and Love to others in winsome relationships in everyday life.
Discipleship is not optional to Christianity ... it is essential!
The Disciple of Christ:

1) Trusts in and relies on Jesus
2) Desires to be His apprentice
3) Follows Him in obedience to God
4) Is undergoing pervasive inner transformation
5) Is empowered to do the assignments of the King

Paraphrase from Dallas Willard
Next Week: The Kingdom Focused Church
Q - What did Jesus mean when He called people to "Follow Me"?
A - Have enough faith in Jesus to believe and act like He is worth leaving everything behind in order to follow.
The Rise of Counterfeit Gospels:
Forgiveness Only: "Be Forgiven" Creates following Jesus as optional
Gospel of the Left: "Help the Needy" Creates detached social action
Prosperity Gospel: "God owes you" Creates entitlement
Consumer Gospel "Meet your needs" Creates self-indulgence
Gospel of the Right: "Be right" Creates arrogance
The Real Gospel (Gospel of the Kingdom / King):

Follow Jesus. Creates disciples who live and love like Jesus!
"The Gospel we preach determines the disciples we make."
- Bill Hull
The Call of Jesus is a call to be His disciple. The call of Christ has always been a call to come and die, and in dying to ourself, find new life in Him.
The Gospel is: The Good News about Jesus Christ that explains God’s Design, Sin’s Intrusion, and Christ’s Solution for Human Flourishing. It is God’s offer of a Restored Relationship with Him as a Child of the King, made possible through Christ’s Death, Burial and Resurrection now available to anyone who will trust and follow King Jesus.
