In Acts 2:42-47, we see believers joining together to grow in their faith and live out the mission Jesus left for them.

Relationships are so important to Jesus that He died on a cross so that we could be restored to a "right relationship" with Him! We GROW first in our relationship with Him and secondly with others. We encourage EVERYONE to be a part of a LifeGroup (small groups meeting in homes throughout Galveston County) and to be discipled one-to-one. Jesus said to him, "You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your mind." This is the first and great commandment.
And the second is like it: "You shall love your neighbor as yourself." Matthew 22:37-39
Lifegroup is a place for us to do the same. Modeled after the early church, Lifegroup is a place to experience authentic community and learn to grow as disciples of Jesus through intentional investment in each other’s lives and by reaching out to others. Lifegroups are at the heart of our church and the best way for you to get involved at Antioch. We meet in homes throughout the city during the week, and we have groups for every age and season of life (including youth and college). Find your LIFEGROUP here.

Although every group has its own style and flow, you can expect each week to have a time of fellowship, worship, studying the Bible and discussing how we can relate it to our lives. Each of our Lifegroups is leader-facilitated, but everyone is invited to participate.

We see in the Gospels that discipleship was one of Jesus’ main tools for building His church. He lived life with His disciples, inviting them into His ministry and giving them insight into His relationship with the Father. He tells us to do the same with each other. You aren’t made to figure out how to follow God on your own. Having someone intentionally invest in your life gives you a place to ask questions, get accountability and receive encouragement. Then you can invest in someone else. Check out these resources and talk to your Lifegroup leader if you’re interested in learning more about discipleship.
