Life Groups

The FBC Life Group Ministry, and why you should become a part.

At its core, we believe our life groups are gatherings of Spirit-led people who have intentional, growing relationships with Christ and each other, and who use those relationships to help fulfill Christ's mission for the church. Matthew 28: 19 says, "Therefore, go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit." At FBC we are committed to disciples making disciples who make disciples. Growing in relationship with Christ is accelerated when you live in community with others who motivate you in the journey to become a disciple of Christ. Life Groups are a great way to live in community.

So, there are a number of reasons why you should join a life group; connecting with others and Christ, building intimate relationships, developing spiritual gifts, caring for one another, loving one another, bearing one another, praying for one another and many more one anothers. In short, life groups provide the means and opportunity to fulfill your responsibility to be an active part in the disciple-making process. In a life group you can’t help being discipled and discipling others. With that in mind we urge you to consider joining this ministry.
