Urban ConnectionsWE BELIEVE IN CHURCH COMMUNITY. We as Christians are not supposed to be isolated. On the contrary, it is when we are together in unity that we are our most powerful. Biblical Christianity is not isolated Christianity. In the early church, we see an account of a vibrant, healthy, caring, embracing family of faith that not only met in the temple courts over the weekend, but also did life together house to house during the week (Acts 5:42). This is one of the greatest keys to healthy church life that there is! Christians loving one another, caring for one another, discipling one another, and using their house as an extension of God’s house! As believers, we are commanded to love one another, to show one another hospitality, to teach one another, and to honour Jesus whenever we meet together.
Urban Connections at Empower Church are the strategy by which we outwork these biblical principles. We dream of a church that not only has inspiring weekend worship services, but also mid week connection points in responsible people’s homes where the local church vision can continue to outwork!
The 3 crucial elements of EVERY Urban Connection is:
1. DEEP COMMUNITY
We want to see people building authentic relationships, standing together in faith, prayer and genuine friendship.
2. DISCIPLESHIP AROUND THE WORD
The word of God is an essential component of an Urban Connection Meeting. It is in this group environment that we can re-emphasise and delve deeper into our Sunday series topics in order to discuss the “How To’s” of applying the taught truth to our lives.
3. AN OUTWARD FOCUS
Far from an insular ‘Holy Huddle’, our Urban Connections maintain a passion for outreach and work intentionally on being open to the unsaved, to evangelism, and to inviting others who could find Christ in their midst.
