What is the Cost of Discipleship?

“He is no fool who gives what he cannot keep to gain that which he cannot lose.”
-Jim Elliott

"God loved a lost world and gave His only Son to be a missionary. I love a lost world and I am a missionary, heart and soul. In this service I hope to live and in it I wish to die."
Dr. David Livingstone

“To deny oneself is to be aware only of Christ and no more of self, to see only Him who goes before and no more the road which is too hard for us.”

“The first call which every Christian experiences is the call to abandon the attachments of this world.”

“To endure the cross is not tragedy; it is the suffering which is the fruit of an exclusive allegiance to Jesus Christ

- Dietrich Bonhoeffer
