SMALL GROUPS AT LOCF
Community is essential to Christian Life
The New Testament demonstrates the importance of home groups as a vital aspect of the local church (Acts 2:46, Acts 20:20, Rom 16:4, 10-11, 14-15), and participation should be standard for all believers. We have been invited to participate in God's story of redemption by influencing the world through our relationship-based community (Mathew 28: 16-20). How are we to do this? It is our “love for one another'' that is the distinguishing characteristic of the Christian life.
