Home fellowship groups


Base Scripture:  Acts 2:42-47;  1 John 1:3;

Description

This is a group of believers geared toward the building up of the Ministry and whose vision is to provide a personal ministry and fellowship to home fellowship group members. It is understood that the group’s commitment to God is also commitment to the Ministry.

A home fellowship is not just a special gathering where members are just there to socialize. Primarily, this group is to serve as an evangelistic tool for unbelievers and a tool for discipleship and fellowship for believers.

The home fellowship is not a local church. It is not to be misconstrued as a local church and should not be substituted for going to church.
