Why do we meet? We meet in CORE groups for fellowship, to pray, to share the Word (Bible) together, to share and meet each other’s needs, to sing praises to God, to share a meal, to support and encourage one another, to share in a service or outreach project in the community, and to bring our friends.
Care for the members of my group through Bible study that promotes Christ character and conduct. Bible studies can be topical or Inductive. Groups can also meet for a specified period of study or strategically multiply into new groups (ultimate goal).
Evangelism - Every person attending CORE should be inviters. Groups should desire to grow as disciples personally and to reach out to the community, to future believers and the unchurched.
“Then He said to them, “The harvest truly is great, but the laborers are few; therefore pray the Lord of the harvest to send out laborers into His harvest.” Lk 10:2
Other Benefits of CORE
Accountability – Relational accountability includes opening one’s life to a few carefully selected, trusted, individual confidants who speak the truth—who have the right to examine, to question, to approve, and to give counsel.
Encouragement – Having people full of the Spirit speak the word of life from God’s Word or the sharing of personal life stories of how God granted victory in one’s life.
Holy Spirit – God meets us in a way unlike any other within the context of CORE where He works in the unseen, hidden areas of our lives.
Growth – At CORE you will have the opportunity to grow spiritually and relationally and the body will grow numerically as people are obedient to the great commission and commandment (Matt. 28:19-20).
