Jesus commands us, as his Church, to be and make disciples. While the process of sanctification is a continual “transformation into his image with ever-increasing glory, which comes from the Lord” (2 Cor. 2:18), we should also have markers which tell us we are equipped for works for service, attained unity in the faith and knowledge of the Son of God, an become mature (Eph. 4:12-13). Toward that end, Oakdale Wesleyan Church has set up 12 markers, 12 Living Stones, as steps of discipleship. This series expounds those markers as illustrated in the lives of the 12 sons of Israel, blessed in Genesis 49:1-28.


An ongoing series to remind us of our vision as purpose as part of Christ’s Church in Oakdale.
