God created us for community.
Studying the Word of God in a small group community of believers is very important. It is an essential element to your spiritual growth. We encourage you to find a group to connect with.
Let the Word dwell in you. What dwells in you controls you. What you think about, hear, read, and watch—good or bad, you soak these things up like a sponge. It is essential, then, to let the living Word of God be what dwells in you. For every Christian, a deep knowledge of the Word helps make the difference between a shallow faith and a life of trust and obedience. This intimacy with the Word develops as we dedicate our lives to reading and studying it personally, in community with others, and regularly examining how it should impact us every day.
