Throughout Scripture living in community was a necessity for God’s people. The Israelites lived and served in groups of people and in the New Testament it is recorded, “And the congregation of those who believed were of one heart and soul; and not one of them claimed that anything belonging to him was his own, but all things were common property to them” (Acts 4:12) and the people day by day were with one mind and taking their meals together (Acts 2:42-47). As a result, they were bearing fruit as people were coming to faith in Christ. What does this look like in our modern context? Why is biblical community important to the life of the believer and the church? This breakout session will examine the biblical basis of community and provide practical ideas for living in community.
