Discipleship is discipline and through disciplines we are trained to be obedient to God. However, every religion has discipline. The key to the Christian life is our relationship to Jesus Christ just as exercise pumps blood from our heart to the muscles, practicing disciplines helps us to know and do the will of God. They strengthen our relationship with Him.  At the BCM this occurs through weekly small groups, corporate worship, and one-on-one time with students.

The disciplines are not the dynamic of the Christian life, Jesus Christ is. But I have never met a dynamic Christian who did not practice the disciplines.
