Though each Christian has a personal relationship with God, the Christian faith is not intended to be lived in isolation. We were made to live in fellowship with God and with each other. The local church is not merely a place that we attend, but a people to whom we belong. The Bible calls us members of the body (1 Corinthians 12:12-31) with the expectation that we contribute to the body for the glory of God and the good of His people.
Radical Life Groups are one of the primary ways we participate in Christian community at Three Rivers, including the meeting of practical needs and pastoral care. This is where we experience the 59 "one another" commands in the New Testament about how we are to live in the Kingdom of God.
Radical Life Groups meet regularly for Bible study, encouragement, prayer, social events, and shared ministry. Some groups share a meal as part of their gathering. Most of our groups meet in the homes of members, but some also meet on campus or elsewhere in the community.
