Become a West Pines Mathetes
What is a Mathetes?
Jesus charged His mathetes, His followers, with a mission: to go through the world to make mathetes. As a church, each of us as individuals, as families, and together as a community intend to give our lives in answer to that call. It is not a small endeavor to be a mathetes of Jesus. In fact, He warned us to “count the cost.” Jesus said, “If anyone would come after me, let him deny himself and take up his cross and follow me,” and “anyone of you who does not renounce all that he has cannot be my disciple.” Truly being a mathetes is an all or nothing situation.
A mathetes cannot survive alone. God intended for this to happen within a community that stirs up this commitment in each other. We are all parts of this body. So we make this covenant together. May God make us into mathetes that will stop at nothing to see a world rescued by Jesus!
