Growing Together in Christ is intended to be the initial study and worship emphasis for a home church or new church start. Thesessions can also help an established church remind itself of the obligations and opportunities of the Christian life and of their life together, but the study has been developed specifically with a home church or a new church start in mind.

The study attempts to recognize the practical interplay that exists between what a church needs to be and do and what individual Christians need to be and do. Simply put and practically speaking, people will help a church be and do what it needs to be and do only as they are helped with their own individual concerns. People are drawn more and more into the life of thechurch as they experience growth in their own lives.
