Gospel Communities

We are a family on mission sent by God to serve our world and continually learn how to walk in His ways.

Gospel Communities are central to our vision to redeem the culture by bringing the gospel to the central coast and beyond.

What is a Gospel Community?

Gospel Communities are groups that regularly gather for the purpose of growing in their relationship with Jesus. They are ordinary people doing ordinary things with a Gospel mindset (a focus on how we are to show Jesus' love and message of hope to those around us).They provide friendship, mutual support, encouragement, and practical instruction in how to live out Jesus' commands to love one another and to take His Gospel to world around us.

At Element, we believe that what you see on Sundays is the tip of the iceberg - meaning that church really happens on a smaller, more intimate level where people live out the identity of Jesus found in the Gospel:

MISSIONARIES - We live actively as missionaries, sent to make disciples.

FAMILY - We are children of God who live and care for each other as a family.

SERVANTS - We are servants of God who serve others as a way of life.

LEARNERS - We are disciples of Jesus who take responsibility for our own development and the development of others.

Why are community groups so important?

Gospel Community Groups are the primary means for discipleship and building the body of Christ at Element Christian Church. We gather in community groups with our friends and neighbors to live life together and to experience the Gospel in ways that we can’t on our own. Gospel Community Groups are a place to wrestle with biblical truth, love and encourage one another, serve our city, and participate in God’s mission in our world. We are people living our lives together as disciples of Jesus who are on a mission to preach the Gospel of Jesus Christ to our neighbors in tangible ways so that they may be reconciled to God and taught how to obey and follow Jesus as His disciples.
