Important to realize, is the absence of spiritual transformation in the lives of some Christians within the membership of Simon Temple African Methodist Episcopal Zion Church. The purpose of this study was to discover if the program’s influence on those participants in the experimental group transform into Christlikeness faster than those participants in the control group. This study evaluated transformation of participants in both groups. There were five areas evaluated. These areas included attitudes, behaviors, relationships, ministry, and doctrine. The findings from this study provided credible and convincing evidence which can be used to encourage mass participation in the MasterLife Christian Discipleship Program in this present writer’s local church and local churches throughout the universal church. Therefore, sincere congregational participation in this program should help to minimize the absence of spiritual transformation in the lives of disciples of Christ in this present and all future generations.
