Life Groups
For those who seek God, this is an opportunity to come together regularly in a local home for the purpose of helping and supporting each other. To worship, share, pray, learn and grow in the grace and knowledge of Jesus Christ and in the process build an authentic Christian community, and to become part of our Christian family.

 

Why do we have life groups?

small group bible study

1. God created the small group. The first humans were a small group the family. It is in a family environment that human beings can most effectively mature emotionally and spiritually.

2. Jesus practiced it. He ministered to the multitude but he lived his ministry in a small group and trained his disciples in that environment.

3. The Spirit inspired it. The first Christians not only worshiped together at the temple but meet together in small groups in their homes (Acts 2:46). The churches that Paul established met in homes and this was the pattern up until the 4th Century when the first church buildings appeared.

4. It is the most effective way to build Christian community. A small group setting helps us to get to know one another, to care and support one another, to pray for one another and to help each other grow in the grace and knowledge of Jesus Christ with one another. It provides a place where new Christians can be discipled and taught.

5. It is an environment for leadership development. God has given all of us gifts of the Spirit to use to serve others. The small group setting allows for gift discovery and development in a non-intimidating and loving environment. It also helps keep the focus of leadership in proper perspective: to serve others in the family of God and in our community, not for self exultation or personal gain.
