LifeGroups are an essential part of our church, as they provide a place where deeper fellowship and better support for one another can take place. Considering that the early church worshiped in large settings in the synagogues as well as in homes, we unite together similarly in order to be in deeper fellowship with God and one-another. God has reconciled us not only to Himself but also to each other. This "each other" is called His Church. Thus, we intentionally strive toward community through men's/women's groups, home gatherings, and other personal settings.
We have been created to live in community and not in isolation. Physically, we do live in a community, but spiritually, socially, and relationally we often live our lives in isolation. We find ourselves with no one to turn to when we have a major issue that has just surfaced in our life. Living in community affords us the opportunity to more wholly experience God through close relationships as we play and pray together, as we encourage and help one another, and as we study and live out God’s word together.
“Dear friends, let us love one another, for love comes from God. Everyone who loves has been born of God and knows God. Whoever does not love does not know God, because God is love.”
We believe the church is the family of God called to live on mission to advance His Kingdom. Because we are God's children through Jesus, we are to live as brothers and sisters. The church is not a building, place, or program, but God's people.
Living in community with one another is essential to growing in the Gospel and becoming more like Christ. Our desire is to see everyone in Cushing come to Christ. Local missions, serving our community and neighborhoods, is an essential part of discipleship.
We want to use the gifts that God has blessed us with to show the people of Cushing how the heart of God looks.
