Discipleship Community Groups (or DCs) exist to foster an environment where people can grow into Christ as a community, mutually receiving and giving gospel care—that is, the love of Christ—as we journey through life together.
Today’s culture celebrates and promotes individualism over community, individual rights and pursuits over the good and love of others. Yet God created us for relationship with Him and with others. We believe that the pursuit of personal autonomy will not lead to deep contentment and purpose, but rather, as we lean into and live in the joys and challenges of unconditional commitment and love for one another, we will experience the belonging to which we were called and made. This is true distinctive of being a Christ-follower, for this belonging is rooted in “one body and one Spirit…one Lord, one faith, one baptism, one God and Father of all, who is over all and through all and in all” (Eph. 4: 4–6).
Four Pillars of DCs
Discipleship communities are all about getting our people to experience the life-giving reign of Christ through the Word, sacrificial care, prayer, and outreach. Through DCs, the church becomes more than a weekly meeting—it becomes who we are.
