In the New Testament, we find descriptions of early church life that are very appealing. Groups who regularly met together were close knit, dynamic, and excited about their faith. These original meetings took place in people's homes and experienced an intimacy that is often lacking in a modern church (Acts 2:43-47, Ephesians 4:15-16).
At Glory Tabernacle, involvement in a home group is one of the most important ways to begin growing and continue growing as a Christian. These groups provide a place for Christians to develop close fellowship and to learn and grow. They also help non-Christians learn more about what it means to be a Christian and to walk in the gifts.
The Bible explains God has arranged a special role for each Christian in the local Christian community (1 Cor. 12:11-25). To that end, we emphasize becoming part of a home group where we can share Christian love with one another in practical ways and learn about the Bible. Home groups often take part in fun and exciting group activities, offering an ideal environment to develop deeper friendships.
