Help your church and/or Fellowship to reach neighbors and families to Christ!

2) Give them this tract entitled "What is a Christian?" 
http://outreachtracts.com/sample_pdfs/What%20is%20a%20Christian.pdf  that you can print and/or order. Make sure that your contact  information is there to allow them to join your prayer group bible  study later on.  You may also get their contact information if they are willing to give 
it. This way you can be proactive in following them up or praying for  their concerns. 

3) Inform them that your house is open to gather on a weekly  basis in order to learn more about Christianity and to pray about  their needs. 

4) If you have already have a group of least five people and have a  specific schedule to meet, you may go ahead, register with us so we  can give  you a free signpost like the one above (if you live in the Corona, CA USA area, if outside, you need to create one) and receive 
our free CD Core discipleship lessons (to those that have no personal computers only) and/or own  downloadable lessons through our secure password protected page  to carry out your prayer group Bible study . Register at we@redeemfamily.org with your name, address, phone number and e-mail. Mention in the subject line: Interested in Emmanuel Called Society.

The goal of  Emmanuel Called Society is:

Is  to  form  disciples that love God with all our heart, soul, mind and strength and that love each other just as Jesus loved us (Matt 22:37-40, Jn 13:34-35).  Who will  lead the way in laying down our lives for others and emphasize the need for every disciple to be a committed servant in the body of Christ (1 Jn 3:16, Mk 10:43-45). Who will reach out within their  community and share their faith, so that through them, God can make disciples of others  (Matt 28:18-20) and bring them into a loving, serving and maturing part of the  body of Christ (Eph 4:11-16).

COMPONENTS OF  AN EFFECTIVE  GROUP:  Acts 2:42
  • Study of the apostles teaching which includes:
A.WORSHIP - The primary function of the family of God is to be a worshiping community in attitude and lifestyle (Matt 4:10, Jn 4:23-24, Rom 12:1-2). In your worship time, you should  seek  to experience the presence of God as you express honor, gratitude, awe, humility and brokenness before Him.
B.DISCIPLING -  the goal is  not  only to  lead   people into Christ (Acts 2:38, Eph 4:1-7) but to growing, training and equipping  other disciples for kingdom-life (Eph 4:11-16).  The group  should recognize the biblical mandate to help each other grow. To accept  accountability, seeking, giving biblical advice and/or counsel and corporate prayer and intercessions with one another. 
C.HOLINESS - God desires us to come out and be separate so we can show the world His holiness (Lev 11:45, 1 Th 4:7). We believe holiness is bigger than just avoiding sin & should focus on developing a taste and passion for God and a hunger for righteousness through His grace. Jesus must be the Lord of our lives in all circumstances needs to be empahsized.
  • Fellowship which includes:
A.FAMILY - As a   family of God there must be  a common faith, common bond  and a common love for God and each other. The commitment is to love, forgive and bear each other's burdens and weaknesses within the group  (Rom 12, 1 Cor 12, Gal 5:13-26).   
B.SERVING - Jesus' goal in life was to give up his life for others (Jn 12:24-26).  Each must  pray how God is leading them to serve each another. The willingness to give up time, talent  and money to bless  each other- is deeply rooted in OT and NT themes.
  • The breaking of the bread which includes:

The descriptive language "break bread" was obviously a common meal (see Acts 27: 35). "Breaking bread as used in Acts 2: 46 is clearly a common meal. They broke bread "from house to house, did eat their meat with gladness and singleness of heart."   Therefore, your group can participate in a meal together after studying the Word of God. A good rule, then, is if "breaking of bread" is found in the environment of a meal, that is its meaning.  If someone in your group is able to do,  "breaking of bread in verse 42  in the atmosphere of worship, as such, the expression is used in the setting of worship or the Lord's Supper, then "breaking of bread" refers to the memorial of the Lord's death.

  • Evangelism which includes
It is a command to  testify to the world that Jesus is our Lord and Savior (1 Pet 2:9-10; 1 Pet 3:15). Evangelism should be personal and natural for each member of the group.  We have made some suggestions but God can lead you into creative evangelism for the type of block you reside at.
BENEVOLENCE - there must be a  commitment  to making a difference in our world around us. Jesus taught that his followers to be givers not only takers (Matt 5:13-16). We want to  be kind to  our neighbors through any help we can extend to them, specifically to those that  need it most.  You can also think of  fundraising activities for your group.  ECS  can suggest some and you  can participate if God leads you.
  • Prayers.  These types of prayers,should probably be understood as representing all types of prayers, should be made “for all men,” specifically those in authority (I Timothy 4:2) and for the unsaved (v.4). Our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ will present our prayers to the Father (v.5) and insure that He will answer them as He sees best  Therefore, t he group  must expand  prayer to eternal issues, lifting our eyes above our own needs to the needs of a lost world!  Once a month, members must adopt their own block  to pray for focusing on families, neighborhoods, cities, churches, schools, seat of government, financial districts  and  others focusing first in their salvation and eventually their transformation in Jesus Christ through the power of the Holy Spirit.  Likewise they can pray for wherever they are working or doing business at- their employer, staff. co-workers,  including people that they are serving.   If given an opportunity, these kinds of prayers needs to be coupled with evangelism.  Eventually, invite those have been saved to  join your group so they too will become disciples of Christ as well.
5) After each of your prayer group bible study, walk around your  neighborhood three times praying for the salvation of families  living there and for revival in your neighborhood. 

6) If your group is ready to share the gospel in your neighborhood, go  door to door once a month with your witnessing tracts (you may request  them in your local church, through this website http://www.tractministry.com/free_tracts.html  and through us (if you live in Corona, CA USA) e-mail us at   at we@redeemfamily.org. Subject line: Witnessing tracts) , and do not
forget to  ask the  families   if you could pray for their needs, even divine healing needs. Make sure to follow-up and find out answers to prayers. Refer them to the appropriate community agencies (if you see the  need to do so), donate some basic goods and monies as God leads you  and/or if you have capacity to do so (optional). From there, you can  easily share the gospel and/or to invite them in joining your prayer  group Bible Study. You can also choose to refer them to other small  prayer group Bible leaders in your church, through the house to house church movement , refer them to a good local church or give this virtual bible study link to them  http://www.ichristianlife.com/site/PageServer?pagename=gmo__action__virtual_study 

7) There's a commitment to this. You may go ahead and multiply  yourself by discerning and motivating among your core group members  (this is gender specific as counsel and discipleship care is more  deeper )who can start their own house of prayer (they could go over the same steps as  suggested here), be  a witness to your own marketplace (place of work and/or influence) and you are always welcome to be a part of EYFMS, Inc. Just e-mail us  at we@redeemfamily.org and mention on the subject line: Volunteer  Opportunity. Better yet, to be a Christian worker or leader in their  own local home church, fellowship or ministry. 

8) Always encourage your prayer group Bible study to connect to a  local Bible-believing church in your community and/or to the concept of a house church movement like www.house2house.com
 
9) As you multiply your prayer small groups Bible study in your neighborhood or sphere of influence , you may consider holding  seminars, fundraisings and any other activities that can raise monies  and/or livelihood (you may share this opportunity in our e-store  www.secretswithamission.com)  to help the families in your group that  are struggling financially.  You can also make a salvation bracelet and sell it for a donation.  You can even use it as a witnessing tool alongside the witnessing tracts. Make sure you do it legally. 


10) If you request a free signpost from us, please consider sponsoring  the same sign for others to use later on. 

11) Feel free to be led God on to effectively  carry out the core  discipleship process according to the needs of your group.
