By definition, a disciple is a follower of Jesus who accepts and assists in spreading the Good News of Jesus Christ. Christian discipleship is the process by which disciples grow in Jesus, equipped by the Holy Spirit who lives in our hearts, which assists us in not only overcoming the pressures and trials of this life, but also helps us to be more Christlike.
