What are Base Groups?

Base Groups are gospel communities on mission together. Together we grow in the Gospel, grow in our love for one another, and grow in mission as we serve and take the Gospel to others.

Base Groups are more than a Bible study. We are a Bible-centered family. We actively encourage one another with the Word, warn one another with the Word, and call one another to obey the Word together.

Base Groups are more than a meeting. We are a community of believers living life together. While we do gather weekly, we move beyond the boundaries of those meetings to enjoy the rhythms of life together and build each other up into the image of Christ.

Base Groups are more than a fellowship. We are the church on mission together. We actively reach beyond the boundaries of our own fellowship in order to bring the Gospel to the lost and serve our community as salt and light.

Base Group Series & Discussion

Starting Sunday, September 9, we will kick off a special emphasis on Base Groups. Beginning that Sunday, our Base groups will take a break from the normal sermon discussion questions to re-imagine what it looks like to be a Gospel community on mission together. In October, we will take a break from the Romans series to highlight a shift in vision for how we live out biblical community at NewBranch. If you are not presently connected with a Base Group, be sure to get connected. Contact Tyler Recker to find a group near you.
