OBEDIENCE

The process is simple • The curriculum is the Bible • The teacher is the Holy Spirit • The priority is obedience • The result is multiplication

A simple meeting format — 3/3 GROUP — divides the time together into three parts so that we can practice obeying what Jesus has commanded.

All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness, so that the servant of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work.
— 2 Timothy 3:16-17
