The purpose of a small (home) group is to encourage each other and build on our foundation in Christ through the word of God and discipleship.
The philosophy of GRCC is to bring others to Christ and build on that foundation through the word of God and discipleship, encourage others to serve God and therefore bring glory to God.
The “One Another” Principle:
Romans 12:10 be devoted to one another
Romans 15:7 accept one another
1 Corinthians 12:25 care for one another
Galatians 6:2 bear one another’s burdens
Ephesians 4:32 forgive one another
1 Thessalonians 5:11 build up one another
Hebrews 10:24 stimulate one another to good deeds
James 5:16 confess your sins to one another
1 Peter 4:10 serve one another
1 John 4:11 love one another
One of the most effective settings to be obedient to the word of God is to pursue these Biblical actions and attitudes with “one another” is through small group ministry.
