Every Congregation in the Upper NY Conference of the UM Church adopted a Discipleship Making Pathway and Plan in 2022. Ours was adopted at our Charge Conference on November 29, 2022. Our Disciple Making plan has 4 points:
#1 – Do you have a relationship with Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior?  This is the first step in the journey of every disciple – we will begin here.
#2 – Are you growing in Biblical Literacy?  The Bible is our Book of Books.  Every growing Disciple should be growing deeper and wider in their understanding of The Word.
#3 – Do you know what your Spiritual Gifts Are?  We all have natural gifting and Spiritual gifts. Do you know what your spiritual gifts are, and how they can be used in building the church and the Kingdom of God? We are making disciples who make disciples.
#4 – Can you identify how your gifts are being used in the fellowship of the Baldwinsville United Methodist Church, and in the world outside of our walls? 
Each disciple should be able to identify their ministry (gifts used within the local church) and their mission (gifts used in service to the world).  We will endeavor to train, equip, and deploy disciples for ministry and mission. We will continue to pray and focus on these four points throughout 2023 as we endeavor to be and make disciples of Jesus Christ for the Transformation of the World.
