You have been burning in your heart for Jesus, to follow Him and been asking this question and here comes your answer right here. As you listen to this answer by brother Tom Scarrella you need to discern what the Lord is saying to you. All in all as you follow Jesus your answer will be quite evident for you. If your decision to go to a particular church is based on anything but the Lord like type of music, childcare facilities then you may need to examine this carefully. It also happens that you outgrow the teaching in a particular local body so then either you go to the one that the Lord is showing you or you become the one discipling the other believers or even start a home group. But in it all Jesus and following Him has to be the supreme focus. Shalom!
The definition of that is discipleship. Discipleship means helping believers grow spiritually. And a disciple is a learner. One who learns from his master. Hebrews 6:1 “Let us leave the elementary teachings about Christ and go on to maturity.” Evidential there is something more than just coming to know Jesus Christ in a personal relationship. There’s something
The Bible says it’s maturity, becoming like Jesus Christ. 2 Peter 3:18 “Grow in grace and the knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ.” Ephesians 4:11-13 “God has given some to be pastors and teachers, to prepare God’s people for works of ministry, so that the body of Christ may be built up until we all become mature like Christ.”
Every Christian needs to be disciple. We should not stop learning because the moment we stop learning that is when we begin to die. Another good thing you can do as a believer is to find someone you can teach so you both grow together.

Discipline is the bridge between goals and accomplishment.
We must all suffer from one of two pains: the pain of discipline or the pain of regret. The difference is discipline weighs ounces while regret weighs tons.
All disciplines affect each other. Mistakenly the man says, “This is the only area where I let down.” Not true. Every let down affects the rest. Not to think so is naive.
Discipline is the foundation upon which all success is built. Lack of discipline inevitably leads to failure.
Discipline has within it the potential for creating future miracles.
One discipline always leads to another discipline.
Affirmation without discipline is the beginning of delusion.
You don’t have to change that much for it to make a great deal of difference. A few simple disciplines can have a major impact on how your life works out in the next 90 days, let alone in the next 12 months or the next 3 years.
The least lack of discipline starts to erode our self-esteem
