Community Groups

“The primary goal for the Community Group is to develop a Christian community where Jesus Christ is experienced in His presence and power, and where lives are transformed by the Gospel through mutual ministry.”
-Tim Keller

What is a Community Group?

Community Groups are small gatherings of people that meet regularly for the purpose of shared lives, friendship, prayer and study, and to engage in the mission of Jesus in dependence upon God and each other.

Four Practices

  1. Share life and truth – We will share life with others throughout the week with honesty, transparency and sacrifice. We will depend upon God’s truth to guide, encourage, admonish and empower us.
  2. Pray – for one another and our community. Community Groups pray regularly for one another, their neighbors, and their city because they know that it is ultimately God who renews the city.
  3. Engage people and our community – The Community Group engages individuals and groups in our city with genuine interest, love, and the hope of redemption. We are called to live with an outward focus.
  4. Love one another – The Community Group is bound together by mutual love and encouragement. We’re a family learning to live out of the Gospel.

Four Principles

  1. We are all broken: We are all more broken than we want to admit, and God is more holy than we comprehend. We are an imperfect community united by the transforming truth of the gospel of grace.
  2. We all need Jesus: In Jesus we are more forgiven and accepted than we can imagine, and God is more delighted in us than we understand. We will point each other to Jesus for hope and change.
  3. We all need one another: We need each other to share our struggles and joys in following Jesus.
  4. The world needs the gospel: The gospel of Christ changes and renews the peoples and cultures of the world.
