Life is better TOGETHER! You can experience the joy of being known, loved and cared for by joining an Antioch Group, where you will study the Word, spend time in community and serve others.
Antioch groups are smaller groups of people who get together for the purpose of making disciples who make disciples. A disciple is a person who lives and loves like Jesus and helps others to do the same. These groups aim to love God, grow together, serve others and share the hope they have in Christ.
Love God: The greatest pursuit in our life is to love God (Matt.22:37). In our groups we grow in our love for God through the study of His word.
Grow Together: You and I were created for community. You will never be all you can be apart from a group of people walking through life with you. Antioch groups create an environment for this to happen.
Serve Others: God has designed you to serve others. You have gifts, abilities and experiences that God wants to use to bless others. Whether serving at the church, a mission or a neighborhood, our groups give you a way to serve others.
Go Share: As followers of Jesus we have the greatest hope in the world - Jesus. We believe this hope is meant to be shared with our neighbors and the world so our groups look to share this hope together.
ANTIOCH GROUP STORIES
We often talk about the power of community in Antioch groups specifically through difficult times. No doubt it is a powerful thing to walk through a difficult time with a group of people who love you, but it is just as powerful to watch community happen in the context of celebrations, like this picture of an Antioch Group celebrating a marriage in their group! Celebrating together is one of the great joys of being part of an Antioch Group. You get to truly celebrate, because you have been on the journey with them. You know what it took to get to this moment. Antioch groups matter because they are about so much more than just a Bible study; they are truly about doing life together as you pursue Christ.
An Antioch Group leader recently asked his group, “Do we meet as a group every Sunday because it is our obligation?” One of the group members replied, “NO! We meet because we love each other and love sharing our lives together. We look forward to Sunday nights. We laugh, we cry, we eat (of course), but we study God’s word together, because we know in our hearts, He loves us, and we love Him.”
