Step 4:
Deepen Relationships with Other Believers in Your Neighborhood

Deepening relationships with other Believers is important because of Jesus’ prayer in John 17:21 which says, "that all of them may be one, Father, just as you are in me and I am in you. May they also be in us so that the world may believe that you have sent me."


By uniting in faith and community, we can be effective witnesses to the unbelieving world. Our unity is our greatest marketing tool.

Step 5: Sharing Meals

In various passages of the Bible, we are reminded of the significance of sharing meals with others. An illustrative example can be found in Matthew 9, where Jesus himself demonstrated the transformative power of sitting down and breaking bread with those who were unfamiliar with Him.

Step 6:
Transitioning to Gathering for Worship/Bible Study

Worship Resources

God tells us in Psalm 22 that He inhabits the praise of His people. Worship is such an important part of our walk with God. It aligns our heart with God’s heart and helps us to practice His presence in our lives.
