Then Jesus said to His disciples, “If anyone desires to come after Me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow Me.Matthew 16:12
What is our goal at CBI Peru?
In the new testament Jesus told His followers to go into all the world and make disciples. A disciple is someone who is a learner and a follower. A person who desires to be exactly like His master. A person who is being transformed into the image of Christ.
Our mission at CBI Peru is to raise up the next generation to be biblical disciples of Jesus Christ. Everything we do falls under that mandate. The questions we continually ask are: Is this helping our students be transformed into the image of Christ? Are they becoming surrendered disciples of our Lord and Savior? We believe our mission is part of the great commission , and it serves as our guiding principle for the school
And the things that you have heard from me among many witnesses, commit these to faithful men who will be able to teach others also.2 Timothy 2:2
Our means to accomplish the goal of making disciples is to follow God’s instruction and example in the Word of God. We are looking for faithful men and women whom we can disciple and prepare to be tomorrow’s ministers. Just as Jesus spent 3 years personally discipling the 12, we want to be hands-on and personal in our discipleship. Our staff and visiting pastors will not only teach Bible classes, but also spend time talking, praying, and discipling our students. Our hope is to have intimate and conversational classes in which the teachers can pour into the students. We do not want to be a lecture hall, but a discipleship base. A place where people can study God’s Word, as well as learn from the personal experiences of those whom have gone before them.
