What’s So Important About Connecting to a Bible Study Group?

Connecting to God’s people in a Bible Study Group at CrossPoint allows followers of Christ to develop in their faith in ways that are virtually impossible otherwise.  God made us to live in community with each other.  God designed us to need each other.  Plus, God best reveals certain aspects of his character through our interpersonal relationships.  Every believer needs a real connection to God’s people to enjoy all that God has created him or her to be.

In learning to be a follower of Jesus, we connect to God through Jesus in three very important but distinct ways.

1.    We connect to God through a genuine relationship with Jesus, and we express our connection to God in worship.
2.    We connect to God’s people for fellowship and encouragement.
3.    We connect to God’s plan to serve others through ministry and missions.

The best way to connect to God’s people at CrossPoint is by actively participating in a Sunday morning Bible Study Group.  In four vital ways, each of these groups aid our development as followers of Jesus.

Bible Study Groups study God’s word together.  They vigorously and prayerfully study the Bible to understand what God is saying to us.  “Do your best to present yourself to God as one approved, a worker who has no need to be ashamed, rightly handling the word of truth.” 2 Timothy 2:15

Bible Study Groups provide encouragement.  Individuals who are involved in a group support each other through prayer, a listening ear, friendship, and helping each other grow in their relationship with Jesus.  “And let us consider how to stir up one another to love and good works, not neglecting to meet together, as is the habit of some, but encouraging one another, and all the more as you see the Day drawing near.”  Hebrews 10:24-25

Bible Study Groups offer real fellowship.  Involvement in a Bible Study Group provides the opportunity to have fun with other Christ-followers, to celebrate together and share good times.  But fellowship also includes helping each other through the tough times, having the support of friends, and knowing these friends are there for you when you need them.  “But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus his Son cleanses us from all sin.”  1 John 1:7

Bible Study Groups are characterized by love.  When connected to a Bible Study Group, people are accepted for who they are.  They are loved because God created them in his image and Jesus died for them on the cross.  This love we have received from God is the motivation for all our interaction in our Bible Study Groups.  “If anyone says, ‘I love God,’ and hates his brother, he is a liar; for he who does not love his brother whom he has seen cannot love God whom he has not seen.  And this commandment we have from him: whoever loves God must also love his brother.”  1 John 4:20-21

These are four important reasons for connecting to a Bible Study Group.  Please look at the Bible Study Group listing on this website and begin exploring which group is best for you.  Visit as many of these groups on Sunday mornings as you would like.  Pray and ask God to show you in which group you should connect.  To a significant extent, your development as a Christ-follower depends on how well you are connected to God’s people.
