What is a Life Group?
Frank Viola – my view of the church
In short, my view of church is quite simple. The New Testament vision of ekklesia is a group of Jesus followers who are learning to live by the indwelling life of Christ together and who are expressing that life in a close-knit community. That’s it in a nutshell.
Life Groups- Jesus followers doing life together. Life Groups are the LIFE BLOOD of Crosspoint Alliance.
What’s important in a Life Group?
Christ Centered – the Holy Spirit is the leader of the group. Jesus is the focus of your time together.
Communion – share the Lord’s Supper together on a regular basis.
Meals – make a habit of eating meals together.
Prayer – together talk to God, share requests and pray for each other.
The Word – read the Bible together and share what God has been teaching you.
Family – as you grow in relationship with each other, support, encourage, listen to and challenge each other.
Gifting – we are all equals in the sight of God but gifted in different ways. Everyone is encouraged to discover and share their spiritual gifts and natural abilities.
Life Change – the outcome of a life group is life change as we grow in our relationship with Jesus and others.
Unity – evidence of a healthy life group will be unity. By keeping Jesus the central focus and putting others ahead of ourselves we will experience unity.
Growth – as you invite others to join your group the Spirit of God will lead you. In His timing, expect to divide and multiply as your group grows.
