GROWTH GROUPS

WHY SERMON-BASED SMALL GROUPS?

1. Fulfill the Great Commission
 And Jesus came and said to them, "All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. 
Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, 
baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, 
teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. 
And behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age.
Matthew 28:18-20

2. Follow the Patterns of the Early Church
And day by day, attending the temple together and breaking bread in their homes, 
they received their food with glad and generous hearts...
Acts 2:46

3. Demonstrate Love in the Body
By this all people will know that you are my disciples, 
if you have love for one another.
John 13:35

4. Multiply the Church
...praising God and having favor with all the people. 
And the Lord added to their number day by day those who were being saved.
Acts 2:47
