Greentown Family Church is a group of people dedicated to serving Jesus, discipling one another, and making lifelong friendships. In Greentown Family, all we do is guided by our mission: Learn it, Live it, Pass it on.
Core Groups are a great way to make some new friends, learn to study the Bible, and get plugged into Greentown Family. A Core Group is a small group of people who meet weekly for worship, Bible study, and fellowship. They live life together in Christ-centered community. We have Core Groups that meet all throughout the Greentown area.
"They devoted themselves to the apostles’ teaching and to fellowship, to the breaking of bread and to prayer. Everyone was filled with awe at the many wonders and signs performed by the apostles. All the believers were together and had everything in common. They sold property and possessions to give to anyone who had need. Every day they continued to meet together in the temple courts. They broke bread in their homes and ate together with glad and sincere hearts, praising God and enjoying the favor of all the people. And the Lord added to their number daily those who were being saved." - Acts 2:42-47
We are followers of God sent to be a blessing to our Greentown community. We believe everyone plays a part in sharing the Gospel and in the body of Christ. Through community-based discipleship we share God's love and the hope of the Gospel in the everyday stuff of life.
Very simply, we believe in the Gospel of Jesus Christ. We believe that He died, rose again, and is coming back one day. And we believe that He did this for all of us! His Gospel is good news and ANYONE that believes in Him and receives Him as Savior would not perish but have eternal life. God's grace and love has been given to us as a free gift and we should grow in our understanding of this daily.
Our desire is that everyone would have a vibrant, personal relationship with God. We believe that a real devotional life is necessary to maintain a solid relationship with God. Through spending time in the Word and communicating with God, we can experience Christ and learn who He is and who we are called to be.
"Consequently, faith comes from hearing the message, and the message is heard through the word about Christ." - Romans 10:17
We are made for community! We believe that the greatest transformation occurs when we are living in real community with our fellow brothers and sisters in Christ. That is why we consider the most important part of Greentown Family to be our Core Groups.
"And let us consider how we may spur one another on toward love and good deeds, not giving up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but encouraging one another—and all the more as you see the Day approaching." - Hebrews 10:24-25
We believe that every Christian has an outward responsibility and should play a role relational evangelism and global missions. In Greentown Family we strive to be a missional community, making disciples who make disciples.
"Go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age." - Matthew 28:19-20
