Philosophy of Ministry
The Institute for Disciple-Making at Brook Hills seeks to align itself with and support the Vision, Mission and Goal of this faith family.
- We seek to glorify God by loving Him with all of our heart, soul, and mind (Matt. 22:37). His character, will, and ways are infinitely worthy of our reverent and serious contemplation.
- We seek to make disciples by teaching the Word of God. Jesus commanded His followers to make disciples by baptizing and teaching (Matt. 28:19-20). Disciples are sanctified by the truth; God’s Word is the truth (Jn. 17:17).
We seek to make disciples of all nations by learning for the sake of others around the world (Matt. 28:19). Our efforts here are intended for world impact.
We are persuaded by God’s Word that the best context for the training of God’s people to fulfill God’s mission is the local church. This training includes the preparation of church leaders in numerous capacities—small group leadership, worship leadership, pastoral ministry, missionary service, and much more.
God in his grace has so gifted the church with evangelists, pastors, and teachers that His bride is able to “equip the saints for the work of ministry, for building up the body of Christ, until we all attain to the unity of the faith and of the knowledge of the Son of God, to mature manhood, to the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ” (Eph. 4:11-13). Therefore, we seek to provide high quality biblical and theological training in the context of the local church.
