God has existed in community as the Trinity from eternity past, enjoying perfect harmony as Father, Son and Spirit (). As His image-bearers, we believe that God’s people were never meant to exist alone. Since the beginning of mankind, God’s people have existed in community, continually demonstrating the love of God through interaction with each other. At Emmaus Road Church, we have a three-tiered discipleship structure that is crucial to our spiritual growth and gospel mission.
First, we hold our Sunday Gatherings as a body of believers committed to worshiping God and being good stewards of God’s grace to each other. At our Sunday gatherings, we sing, pray, and learn from the truths God has given us through His Word, the Holy Bible. We also follow in obedience to Jesus by participating in the Lord’s Supper (communion) and baptizing converted people.
Our second tier of discipleship is our Community Group structure. We don’t want to simply “offer” these groups. We want the church to be built by them. These group settings offer an avenue for several things: personal care within the Body of Christ, progressive sanctification (becoming more like our Savior, Jesus), fellowship with one another and the ministry of the Holy Spirit as He equips and edifies His people for the glory of Jesus. We also seek to be outwardly-focused, meaning we spend a lot of time praying and planning for how we might better reach our lost neighbors and city.

The third tier of our discipleship structure is our establishing and maintaining Discipleship Groups. These discipleship groups are gender-specific and meet weekly (when possible). These groups share information in understood confidentiality. They meet to accomplish several items: they hear and obey (meet God in His Word), repent and believe (confess sin and plan for spiritual growth), and they plan and pray (plan for identifying and impacting people in their lives with the truth of the gospel).
