Who We Are and Why We Gather
The Be-Held Bible Study Community is made up of women seeking, living and being transformed by the truth of God's Word. We gather to encourage each other in the love of Jesus Christ, through Word bound counsel, confession, prayer and service and to:
1. Seek the truth of God's Word through study and meditation, in a way that yields practical insights for a life in God.
2. Live the truth of the Gospel of Jesus Christ in life affirming community.
3. Be transformed through Christ-centered discipleship, so that in us will be the character of Jesus Christ.
How We Gather
1. Once per week.
2. On time.
3. Over a bountiful meal.
4. In online and in homes.
We commit to keeping the confidences of each member of our Be-Held Bible Study Community.
We commit to prayerfully inviting other women with a desire to seek, live and be transformed by the truth of God's Word.
We commit to adopting a locally registered and effective women's shelter. Each Be-Held Bible Study group commits to engaging a local women's shelter to learn of their needs and prayerfully serve them, in agreement with the grace God has given each of its members. Groups share a verified report of their local service as part of the terms of maintaining their status as a Be-Held Bible Study group.
*In order to maintain an environment conducive to transparency and the kind of relational intimacy that fosters transformation in Jesus Christ, any Be-Held Bible Study Group within the Community is considered full at 10 committed members.
