Lifegroups Are The Heartbeat Of Our Church
The earliest Christians met together in homes, sharing meals and possessions, loving God and each other, and always welcoming newcomers (Acts 2:42-47). At Antioch Community Church in Beverly we embrace this as our model for Christian community. To follow it, we build and support small group meetings in homes throughout Beverly and the surrounding neighborhoods. These small groups are called Lifegroups, and they are what we consider to be the heart of our church.
Lifegroups are a great way to connect with God and with other people at Antioch Beverly. In each Lifegroup meeting there are times for prayer, worship and Bible study as well as times for fellowship and building friendships. Our Lifegroups are open to all, and visitors are always welcome. Take a look at our current Lifegroups below. There sure is one you can connect with!
We Have Four Core Values For Our Lifegroups
Word-Centered…we submit to Jesus by honoring and obeying His Word as we are empowered by His grace.
Presence-Based…we eagerly desire the Holy Spirit’s activity as we partner with God in prayer, worship, and the practice of spiritual gifts.
Kingdom-Relationships…we pursue authentic fellowship by humbly and sacrificially choosing to love and relate to one another God’s way.
Mission-Focused…we embrace the call to be disciple-makers of all people as we reproduce our lives and ministry while compassionately caring for others and introducing them to the Good News of Jesus.
Lifegroups For Families And People Of All Ages
As a ministry for our families with children and older adults, we desire to see the book of Acts come alive by devoting ourselves to consistent fellowship, prayer and growth.
Our intention is to see people come into deeper relationship with Christ and increase in passion for Him and His purposes.
Antioch Community Church in Beverly's Lifegroup ministry is a great place to see your life transformed by the presence of Christ as we experience Him together in community.
