We've been created in the image of God, who Himself is the perfect community: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. As image bearers, we're made to display community and that community finds its ultimate and highest fulfillment in Jesus Christ - who died that all who trust in Him become the very children of God. We've been formed and shaped into a family called the church.
Before Jesus ascended to the right hand of the Father, He commanded us as His followers and family to make disciples. We believe that the biblical way disciples are formed is in community where we share life together, all of its highs and lows, that we can be shaped and formed by God's Word into His image.
Maybe you've never been in community like this, maybe you've struggled to connect to community for whatever reason—schedules, expectations (realistic or unrealistic), or maybe you've just been concerned with what's required to be in a group. But biblical community is not optional for the Christian life, it's critical.
The people in community group are fellow believers with whom you share the greatest thing in common: salvation through Christ. God made you to gather together and live the one another's we find in scripture. Even if it doesn’t seem immediately evident, your lives intersect meaningfully because Christ has invaded your sinful life and theirs. Jesus has overridden the broken story you were living in, your rebellion against God, and now it's His common story you share and brings encouragement one another as the day of Christ's return approaches.
