Life groups are smaller gatherings which meet in homes designed to form more intimate relationships with one another and God. Life Groups are really where the "rubber meets the road" in our walk with Christ. As we share our lives we laugh together and cry together, and learn to carry the burdens of our brothers and sisters. Bethel uses the term "Life Groups" because we are living life together through this means. The foundational scripture for this ministry is Acts 2: 42-47
" 42And they devoted themselves to the apostles’ teaching and the fellowship, to the breaking of bread and the prayers. 43And awe[d] came upon every soul, and many wonders and signs were being done through the apostles. 44And all who believed were together and had all things in common. 45And they were selling their possessions and belongings and distributing the proceeds to all, as any had need. 46And day by day,attending the temple together and breaking bread in their homes, they received their food with glad and generous hearts, 47praising God and having favor with all the people. And the Lord added to their number day by day those who were being saved."
