GA Baptist Discipleship

Where does evangelism end and discipleship begin? That is an initial question in a discipleship resource called This is the Gospel. This is the Gospel was created to help new believers and undiscipled believers understand their walk with Christ, become grounded as disciples, and gain a basic framework for the Christian life.

This resource was developed by Dr. Paul Gotthardt, formerly the founding and lead pastor of Life Baptist Church in Las Vegas, Nevada. After 18 years of ministry in Las Vegas, he was called as the sixth senior pastor at Sherwood in June 2021. Paul is a native of Savannah, GA, and he and his wife have been married for 27 years. Father of two college age daughters: Shana and Kaylee.

John Lagrange is the Director of This Is the Gospel at Sherwood Church, and he was previously the missions and groups pastor at Life Baptist Church in Las Vegas. He is originally from New York and married to Virginia. They have three kids and are exploring all South Georgia has to offer!

In this episode:
  • What drove Paul to create this curriculum?
  • Why are relationships foundational in our walk with the Lord?
  • John gives his testimony and talks about his involvement with This is The Gospel.
  • How do we maintain the tension of the relationship with Christ, the Church, and the World?
