Life Groups are essential to our life and purpose as a community of Christ followers. We simply cannot be the church, as Christ intends us to be, unless we are in meaningful relationships with other Christians. Jesus Christ does not call us to stand alone in the Christian life. We learn and grow best when we do life together and support one another as members of a healthy LIFE Group.
You will understand the Bible better. If you’ve ever listened to a Bible teacher or Pastor and wanted to stop that person and say, “But what about…?”, then a LIFE Group is for you! In a LIFE Group you can ask questions, participate in a discussion of the text, and hear others share insights and illustrations of the truth you are trying to grasp. The Bible must be applied to your own personal situations if it is to be truly life-transforming, and that often happens as we study together in LIFE Groups.
You will feel like part of God’s family. Most people who are part of a LIFE Group say that the greatest benefit is the close relationships and friendships that develop. You’ll discover that your needs and problems are not unique; we’re all in the same boat. It will help you to know that others are facing the same difficulties, or have lived through them and learned spiritual principles in the process that can help you. We really do need each other. God never meant for you to go through it alone in the Christian life!
You will handle stress and pressure better. Life Groups provide an excellent source of support in times of crisis, change, and stress. You’ll have a sense of stability and security knowing there are people who care for you and are standing with you. Many people can testify that they would not have made it through a difficult time if it hadn’t been for the support of their Life Group.
