5 B's of Evangelistic Disciple Making

When asked, most Christians can answer the questions "What is evangelism?" and "What is Discipleship?" The harder question comes in next, "Which is the true call of a Christian?" Depending on the age, denomination, and culture of the person, you will get different arguments as to why one approach is better then the other. We however, argue that the answer is a hybrid of both we call EVANGELISTIC DISCIPLE MAKING.


The Great Commission for Jesus in Matthew 28 gives us the blue print for Evangelistic Disciple Making as our ultimate call within the Church.


We are told to GO out, not stay in. This is one area that evangelism highlights well and is an important aspect of Evangelistic Disciple Making. The call is to go where the people are rather than expecting them to come to us. 

Make Disciples

Now that we are out, we are told to make disciples. This is accomplished through an evangelistic model know as Celtic Evangelism, and the 5 B's.

Baptizing Them

Baptism is a natual step in the disciple making process, whether dunked, sprinkled, or dry-cleaned, the baptism of the Spirit along with the public declaration of one's faith is a crucial piece to the Disciplemaking process.

Teaching Them

18 Then Jesus came near and said to them, “All authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth. 19 Go, therefore, and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, 20 teaching them to observe everything I have commanded you. And remember, I am with you always, to the end of the age.”

Matthew 28:18-20

The final step, is a lifelong process, of teaching them what Disicipleship really looks like. Ultimately the goal is to teach them to teach others, or as we like to say "Producing Reproducing Reproducers."

THE 5B's


This is a feeling of belonging among both the disciple and disciple maker, that they are a welcome part of the community. This comfort allows for relationship building and trust to ask questions that will eventually lead to the second B.


Once there is a sense of belonging, belief is able to happen. Belief comes from a convincing of the Spirit that Jesus is Lord. Belief will lead in to the 3rd B.

Now that they have received the Holy Spirit, and are apart of a discipling church, behavior will begin to change, Fruits of the Spirit will begin to show, and a transformed mind will begin to come forth, which will eventually develop into B5.


Becoming a disciple is not the end of the discipleship journey, this is a life long process, but once you become a disciple, you are now supposed to also become a disciple maker. Starting back at Belong with an entire new group of people you are called to reach.


Evangelistic Disciple Making is a critical role of the Church, and what we strive to practice and promote within everything we do and produce here with Misfits. While this isn't the only method of evangelism out there, we believe it is the most effective and the best acting out of the Great Commission.
