You may have noticed that there are a lot of resources available for theological education, church planting, and missional church, but not for discipleship. We noticed too, so we started GCD to address the need for reliable resources on a whole range of discipleship issues.
When we use the term “gospel-centered,” we aren’t trying to divide Christians into camps, but to promote a way of following Jesus that is centered on the gospel of grace. While all disciples of Jesus believe the gospel is central to Christianity, we often live as if religious rules or spiritual license actually form the center of discipleship.
Jesus calls us to displace those things and replace them with the gospel. We’re meant to apply the benefits of the gospel to our lives every day, not to merely bank on them for a single instance of “being saved.” A gospel-centered disciple returns to the gospel over and over again, to receive, apply, and spread God’s forgiveness and grace into every aspect of life.
