What is a Life Group? Consider this...the life of the church recorded in Acts 2:42-47 was the result of the outpouring of the Holy Spirit into the lives of a people united and committed to the mission of God (Matthew 28:18-20). The description we read about in Acts was not the means of becoming a great church, but the results of God working through people committed to Him and empowered by His Spirit to live out His mission.
A Life Group consists of believers who live out their lives as families and missionaries who live out the mission of God together in areas they live, and servants who demonstrate the love of God in tangible ways.
We believe "making disciples who make disciples" is more than just services, programs, or something we do only at church. Life Groups exist to equip one another to make disciples by living out the love of Christ intentionally in the ordinary, daily, routine moments of life, because of who we are in Christ. We do this by learning and teaching God's great story (His Word) and by teaching one another to apply and obey His Word to our individual lives. Being involved in the lives and community around us, we remind one another of God's truth and the transforming power of the Holy Spirit changing the way we think and live. We celebrate God's goodness together. We eat together. We bless one another. We take time together to rest, play and restore the beauty of God's creation in ways that reflect God and His salvation to those around us.
