Small Group Ministry
Fundamentally the church is a fabric of relationships. Jesus gives a clear command to love
each other (John 13:34, 35), with His love for us being the standard.
Throughout the New Testament there are specific suggestions about church relationships.
Congregations are to care for each other and give attention to the needs of each
other: (I Corinthians 12:25; Philippians 2:4), defer to one another (Ephesians 5:21),
bear each other’s burdens (Galatians 6:2), teach
and admonish each other (Colossians 3:16, 17), encourage and build up one
another (I Thessalonians 5:11), confess and pray together (James 5:16), and love each
other (I John 3:22, 23; 4:4, 11).
To be a Christian is to join a body whose head is Jesus Christ.
Since building relationships is a primary function of the church, it must provide
settings and structures that give opportunities for this to happen. Experience has
demonstrated that the small group is one of the best vehicles for the church to become
what God intends it to be—a people sharing Christ, meeting each other’s needs and
reaching out in love to the world.
