As Jesus walked beside the Sea of Galilee, he saw Simon and his brother Andrew casting a net into the lake, for they were fishermen. “Come, follow me,” Jesus said, “and I will send you out to fish for people.” At once they left their nets and followed him. —Mark 1:16–18

Then he called the crowd to him along with his disciples and said: “Whoever wants to be my disciple must deny themselves and take up their cross and follow me.” —Mark 8:34

The call of Jesus for us today is the same as for those who first heard him: “Follow me.” Churches of Christ are a fellowship of Christian congregations devoted to intentional discipleship and to helping others follow Jesus.
