History & Purpose of LIFE Groups at TBC
Motivated by a desire to fulfill Jesus’ command to make disciples, Truth Baptist Church launched a life group program in June 2016. The intention for each group is to establish a caring, safe environment whereby disciples of Christ can share life’s experiences and encourage one another to grow in faith through each of life’s trials. We believe that making disciples in a relational environment is the model and method shown to us by our Savior Jesus Christ.
We began with 6 groups in June 2016, and in September increased to 10 groups. We have plans to increase again in January as the Lord blesses. As of fall 2016, over 80% of our adult Sunday morning attendance has participated in life groups.
Life Group Study Plan
Our curriculum has been to follow the life of Christ with His disciples as presented in the gospels. Each week a Bible story is presented and discussed through a series of questions. The questions are intended to bring out the “Head” (background), “Heart” (understanding) and “Hands” (application) of each story. We have had many testimonies of rich discussions of the life of Christ using this approach to Bible study.
Trusting in the blessing of God through obedience to His Word, it is our hope and expectation to expand our group number and to add to our current curriculum. We have already started a new group which has focused on prayer. We hope to have new groups in the future which will explore additional topics as marriage, the Holy Spirit and others as the Lord leads.
