Importance of Life Groups

Acts 2:42-47 “And they continued steadfastly in the apostles’ doctrine and fellowship, in the breaking of bread, and in prayers…”

Life Groups are the model of church growth and discipleship that goes back to the early church where all the believers spent time together learning from the apostles, fellowshiping with one another, praying and socialising in their homes, which led to the care of every individual and the progressive growth of the church. We want to establish different kinds of Life Groups to meet different needs of people and ensurte that everyone growths into Christian maturity and have opportunities to use their gifts and talents for the expansion of the kingdom of God. 

Purpose:
                      1. Provide pastoral care for every member of the church.
                      2. Provide discipleship opportunities for believers to grow into maturity.
                      3. Train believers to practice their gifts for the work of the ministry.
                      4. Encourage and support each other in the community.
                      5. Provide outreach opportunities in communities where we live through building relationships and friendships with those who don't know Christ as their Saviour.
