Biblical community is more important than ever during this time of COVID-19. BRAVE groups are continuing to meet weekly online.
Relationships are the DNA of BRAVE Church
We believe that life-on-life, authentic relationships that are grounded in love (Eph 3:14-21) are the best environment for making disciples of Jesus. One of the places that this can happen is in our BRAVE groups. Groups meet weekly online and share life with one another while studying the bible.Join A Group
What Do BRAVE Groups Do?
Become a Disciple
Becoming a disciple of Christ is a lifelong pursuit. The discipleship process starts with access to a relationship with Jesus and in a community with others who continually encourage. “We believe that encouragement is the adrenaline of gospel growth. Groups provide this boost with prayer, accountability, and the the power of gospel (Romans 1:16) for transformation in your life.
Build Authentic Relationships
Becoming a disciple can only happen in community with others (James 5:16, or Heb 10:23-25). Disciples of Jesus have nothing to hide; we can do everyday life together with gospel intentionality; confident in the cross of Jesus when we fall short. This bold faith in the gospel causes BRAVE disciples to live real, raw, but reverent lives that produce authentic relationships.
Experience Continual Growth
God often presents learning opportunities in the life of a disciple. Every group helps to see a problem in a light with a new perspective (Rom. 12:1-2 or Heb. 10:23-25, 1 Thess 5:14-18) provided by a fellow follower of Jesus who is for you and wants to see your transformation.
Discuss the Sermons
We become what we behold (2 Cor. 3:18). Group conversations center around The Scripture passage taught in the sermon from the weekend service. Using the sermon question guide, which are questions written to encourage and directly apply what we are learning from God’s Word. We want to strive to “not [become] a forgetful hearer, but an effectual doer” (James 1:25).
Living the Practices of Jesus
Growth as a disciple is not just new information, but includes confession, repentance, and restoration with new action. Groups encourage one another to learn the practices of Jesus so that we abide (John 15:4-7) personally in Christ through daily bible reading, memorization, fasting, tithing, and prayer. Together as a community we grow and change.
Disciples Who Makes Disciples
Groups empower everyone to engage in discipleship and to be discipled. The ultimate goal of discipleship is always to be “sent” – being unleashed as a disciple to produce more fruit and disciple those who He puts in your path (Matt 28:18-20).
