Jesus — “I am the way and the truth and the life.”
Jesus — “I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full.”
We treat him as a vending machine when we only give him a token of our time and attention while expecting him to fulfill our every desire. Jesus promises us a great deal. He promises us he will give us a full and rich life. He promises to deal with our stresses, pain, purpose in life, and desires. He promises to build in us strength to be able to face whatever life throws at us. But these things only happen when we make him the path we follow. We find his promises becoming a reality when we become his disciples.
We don’t follow Jesus alone. First, Jesus walks with us. He guides and empowers us. He provides the strength and growth we need as we follow him.
Secondly, we walk purposefully together. Jesus gave us a model of how we walk together. He chose a small group of twelve men to concentrate on. Together they grew as they applied Jesus’ teachings. We follow that example at Above The Haze by forming small groups of men and women call Cores. Together the members of those groups study scripture, learn to apply the teachings of Jesus, and work together at the larger mission Jesus has called us to while encouraging and supporting each other.
This process is called discipleship. Discipleship is learning and applying the teaching of Jesus together. Why together? Because Jesus taught us to follow him that way. Community, active love, practical forgiveness, and a community of acceptance and encouragement are central features of the God’s plan for our lives.

Jesus — "Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.”
