Life Groups are led by mature leaders who participate in ongoing biblical, theological, and leadership development in a community of leaders. Life Groups exhibit the five characteristics of the New Testament church found in Acts 2:42-47 (Bible Teaching, Corporate Prayer, Worship, Fellowship, and Missions). The typical Life Group will take a biblical and theological approach to Scripture and study books of the Bible in community encouraging participation of members. The initial core study focuses on the NT movement in Ephesus and the key components of a healthy, multiplying church. Participants in a Life Group actively share their faith in their network and community as well as participate in following up evangelistic events. Leaders are those individuals who have been identified by the body of Christ with the gifts of apostle, prophet, evangelist, or shepherd-teacher (APES-T). Life Groups are praying about and pursuing the following:

  • Taking part in planting new churches both in the United States and abroad
  • Participation in Short-Term Equipping Teams to train church leaders around the world
  • Developing New Testament Leaders
