The Biblical Foundation for Care Groups
The scriptures provide us with a God-given strategy for conserving the harvest of the church. The principle of small groups can be seen throughout the Word of God.
Jesus modeled small group life with the twelve disciples. “Then He appointed twelve, that they might be with him and that He might send them out to preach.” (Mark 3:14)
Small groups were an integral part of the early church structure.
“All the believers were together and had everything in common… everyday they continued to meet together in the temple courts. They broke bread in their homes and ate together with glad and sincere hearts…” (Acts 2:44-47)
“Day after Day, in the temple courts and from house to house, they never stopped teaching and preaching the good news that Jesus is the Christ!” (Acts 5:42)
“You know that I have not hesitated to preach anything that would be helpful to you but have taught you publicly and from house to house” (Acts 20:20)
