God is calling us to relationship…with Him and others
Theology, Vision, Structure of Bethel Connect Groups
Theology of Connect Groups
God is an eternal community:(small group) of Father, Son, and Holy Spirit and He made us in His image (Genesis 1:26). This means you were designed to live life in community with others.
The Connection of Vertical and Horizontal Relationships: the command to love God is sewn together with the command to love others (Matthew 22:37-40). That means that we will experience more of God, the more we experience community with others.
Our church, communities, and world need this: Christian witness is only as powerful as the love demonstrated in community with one another. “By this all men will know that you are My disciples, if you have love for one another” (John 13:35).
Small groups give us the opportunity to demonstrate this kind of love to the outside world as we connect in community with one another, grow spiritually together, and serve our church, community, and world together.
Our Vision for Bethel Connect Groups
To progressively develop small group opportunities for the purpose of creating community among members of Bethel in a relational context of accountability and connectivity.
To have a means of measurably identifying the spiritual growth of Bethel members.
To develop an ongoing unified group of well-trained facilitators who will help create and maintain a relational environment for discipleship to occur.
