“Community is deeply grounded in the nature of God. It flows from who God is. Because he is community, he creates community. It is his gift of himself to humans. Therefore, the making of community may not be regarded as an optional decision for Christians. It is a compelling and irrevocable necessity, a binding divine mandate for all believers at all times.” – Dr. B. Bilezikian
The Church & Biblical Community
The Book of Acts, especially Acts 2:42-47, gives us a great picture of the early church and the components of a biblical community. These believers did life deeply together through teaching, fellowship, communion, prayer, radical generosity, and corporate worship. They spent time eating, learning, celebrating, proclaiming the Gospel, and loving each other.
Life Groups: Purpose & God’s Intention
God never intended for us to live isolated lives. He calls us to love, not in an abstract or superficial way, but in a deep, face to face, relational way with other believers. Together, we are to reflect on the loving character of God, walk in step with the Holy Spirit, and build up the church in order to proclaim the Gospel of Jesus Christ to the world.
The life groups of our church are established to provide an environment where believers can connect with each other for the purpose of growing in our walk with God, loving one another, and contributing to the work of the church, in order to glorify God and make disciples of all nations.
