We believe that life and faith are not meant to be experienced alone.
Lifegroups are an intentional way we bring people together for growth in faith and encouragement in how we individually live the gospel (follow Jesus) in our own walks of life.
Individual groups will have different specific formats and meeting schedules, but the heart of all our lifegroups is the desire to develop community among believers and to provide an opportunity for ongoing growth in discipleship. We have groups for various life stages and age groups, groups that are career or industry-specific, and groups that share a commitment to a particular geographic location in South Florida.
Every group is different, and we want to help you find the perfect fit.
We grow as we act on Jesus teaching and follow his example.
Our belief about who Jesus is motivates us to actively seek out his instruction, to learn from his example, and to apply what we learn. We call this process of becoming like Jesus discipleship. A disciple is a student of Jesus who grows more like him by seeking out and applying his teaching.
Regardless of your age or life stage there are many ways for you to understanding more about who Jesus is and what it means to follow him. Our community page will help you find classes, events, ministries and programs that will help you take a next step towards growing more like Jesus. The give page will connect you with a variety of opportunities where you might want to use your time, abilities, and resources to apply Jesus teaching.
We believe God demonstrates gracious and generous love toward us. As we receive the gift of his love it causes us to become more generous.
In addition to the most significant gift of God’s love, our church family understands that our lives, our time, our abilities, and our possessions are also gifts from God. With this in mind we see a variety of opportunities to live generously by sharing all that God’s has so freely given to us.
We learn more about God’s love and experience his joy when we love others as he has loved us. (John 15:12)
We need God and we have been given an incredible opportunity to talk with him.
Praying to God affects God (vs) it affects us (James 5:13-14) and it affects others (James 5:16). Through prayer we are able to honor God for who he is, to ask for his forgiveness, to confess our own need for him, to thank him for his generosity towards us, and to ask him to intervene in our lives or the lives of others.
We take this opportunity very seriously and consider it a great privilege that God would offer to us the opportunity to approach him. Would you like to learn more about prayer, to be prayed for, to pray for others, or to attend our next prayer service?

The church isn’t a place, it’s a people. Our building really doesn’t become "the church" until the people arrive.
We believe Jesus has established the people of the church as the primary way he is spreading and demonstrating his love to the world. It is both a great privilege and a great responsibility to be a part of the church. Unfortunately, many people throughout history have not represented the church well. Even now, too often church is an event people attend and not an identity they embrace. In light of this, the process of joining the church is an important part of identifying ourselves as people who are committed to following Jesus. We count on our members to commit to the church, to love it, to pray for it, to serve for it, and to give to it.
You can get a better idea of what it means to join SRC by attending our New Members Class. This class goes into depth about our vision, beliefs, and values; it is the first step towards church membership. We hope you’ll consider joining us for our next class.

The Bible clearly teaches that baptism is the first step of obedience after making a commitment to Christ. (Matt. 28:18-20) Baptism allows a believer to communicate to the world their heart-felt commitment to Christ. People often have questions regarding baptism: Why should I be baptized? I’ve already been baptized. Do I have to do it again? Does it matter if someone is sprinkled or dunked? Should babies be baptized? Take a few minutes to read more (PDF) about what baptism is and who it’s for.

It’s our hope that your next step brings you more of the joy and life Jesus came to reveal.(John 10:10)
