Most people assume that the most important part of a small group is content and structure, but we would argue that the most important aspect is the core values that define the group.
These core values ought to be the heart and soul of every group that set the tone and goals of every group. Below are the four core values that we pursue for every small group.
You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind. (Matt. 22:37)
Confess your sins to one another and pray for one another. (James 5:16)
And they devoted themselves to the apostles' teaching and the fellowship, to the breaking of bread and the prayers. (Acts 2:42)
A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another: just as I have loved you, you also are to love one another. By this all people will know that you are my disciples, if you have love for one another. (John 13:34-35)
