Life Groups are gospel communities of 10-25 adults and children who meet together to encourage each other in their relationship with Jesus Christ. A Life Group gathers in a group member’s home to study the God’s Word in community, pray for one another, and enjoy real fellowship. One of the main purposes of Life Groups is for followers of Jesus to develop authentic, sanctifying, grace-filled relationships with other believers at Living Hope Bible Church.

Life Groups have five basic functions:

  1. Progressive Sanctification – Life Groups serve as a place for Christians to experience spiritual growth and to encourage others in their walk with Christ.
  2. Biblical Fellowship – Groups members not only “do life together,” they participate in the gospel together in a variety of ways.
  3. Mutual Ministry – Group members grow in God’s grace by personally serving one another.
  4. Spiritual Gifts Exercised – Within the scope of a Life Group each person’s spiritual gift can be employed to serve the rest of the group to the glory of God.
  5. Catalyst for Evangelism & Outreach – Life Group members encourage one another to share the gospel with their friends and neighbors. They pray together for those who don’t know Christ and pursue outreach in their neighborhood and community.
