A compass guides you on your journey, so you know you're going the right direction. As a compass points to true north, a follower of Jesus always points to the reality of the Gospel. Jesus is our model, means, and motivation for life. We don't work to make ourselves disciples, Jesus' work makes us into disciples. It is by this truth that we see everything else.
The Ecosystem is a way to see the life of a disciple of Jesus that helps us explore our new identity as Christians. Each of the six elements of the Ecosystem is what a disciple already is. You do not work to become these things -- if you are in Christ, you are a worshiper, family member, learner, servant, missionary, and reproducer. We grow as we develop this kind of heart, and take steps in these areas. We have a few suggested next steps for each element of discipleship, but these are just the beginning, as God shapes your heart.
