God's plan is for his children to enjoy and help each other as we live this life - to have significant, meaningful relationships with each other - to have true friends. The early church in Acts Chapter 2 learned this. They realized that meeting "in the temple" only was not good enough to accomplish this purpose. They recognized that God's plan was for them to also meet regularly from house to house in what we at Word of Faith call Faith Groups.
What is a Faith Group
Faith Groups are groups of four to twelve people who meet bi-weekly in homes, workplaces, and local establishments where participants experience the PRESENCE OF GOD, AUTHENTIC COMMUNITY (ABC - Accountability, Belonging, and Care) and SPIRITUAL GROWTH (Growth in their love of God, community with believers, and influence with unbelievers.
What happens at Faith Group?
Faith Group meetings are simply a time where we come together for food, fun, to make new friends, pray, and to learn how to apply God's teachings to our lives.
Ultimately, Faith Groups Provide Four Things:
- A place to CONNECT: "They continued steadfastly in the apostles' teaching and fellowship, in the breaking of bread, and prayer" (Acts 2:42).
- A place to PROTECT: "Look after each other so that none of you fails to receive the grace of God. Watch out that no poisonous root of bitterness grows up to trouble you, corrupting many" (Hebrews 12:15 NLT).
- A place to GROW: "Iron sharpeneth iron; so a man sharpeneth the countenance of his friend" (Proverbs 27:17).
- A place to WIN Your World to Jesus: "...Yes, whatever a person is like, I try to find common ground with him so he will let me tell him about Christ and let Christ save him" (1 Corinthians. 9:22b TLB).
