…that you, being rooted and grounded in love, may have strength to comprehend with all the saints what is the breadth and length and height and depth, and to know the love of Christ that surpasses knowledge, that you may be filled with all the fullness of God. – Ephesians 3:17-19

Searching out the length and breadth!

The Lord Jesus is so vast. Like a wide, never-ending ocean that stretches far beyond what the eye can see. His person is limitless, and His love is unending. In Him lies all the riches of God, waiting to be discovered and enjoyed. 

The Deeper Life Network is a network of believers that desire to search out these depths. To traverse the endless ocean that is Christ from one infinite corner to the other. And to dive down into the depths of His person  in search of all that He is! 

Plumbing the depths!

The Lord is also infinitely deep. Deep enough for the tallest tree to put down the deepest roots. There is no end to the depths of His person. 

As such, we desire to press into Him as far as possible. To uncover the deeper aspects of His nature and kingdom. To leave behind the shallow waters and press on into the deep. 

So that we too, may become completely rooted and grounded in Him. With our entire beings being found within Him!

Reaching the heights!

The glory of the Lord stretches higher than the sky. Even past the moon, sun, and stars. He is infinitely vast. There is utterly no end to Him. 

African Baobab trees are exceptionally tall. They stretch out far above the tree canopy. As such, they are able to enjoy the greatest amount of sunlight throughout the day, from the first rays in the morning, to the last rays at night.  

Just like these majestic Baobabs that have been growing for hundreds, if not thousands of years, we desire to reach higher and higher in Christ. We want to stretch out into the unending vastness of His person to enjoy all the fullness of His glory.  

Together with all the saints!

Coming to know the depths of the Lord and becoming rooted and grounded in His love is something that can only be discovered with others. The Lord is simply too vast to comprehend on our own. 

It is only together that we will have the strength to comprehend that which is incomprehensible, and to know that which surpasses knowledge.  

As such, we have established this network to gather together all those saints that desire to know the Lord in His depths, and to ultimately become filled with all the fullness of God. 

We welcome you to join us in this glorious and eternal pursuit! 

His intent was that now, through the church, the manifold wisdom of God should be made known to the rulers and authorities in the heavenly realms, according to his eternal purpose that he accomplished in Christ Jesus our Lord. – Ephesians 3: 10-11

What is the Deeper Life Network?

The Deeper Life Network is a non-denominational network of Christians who are seeking to know God and one another in deeper ways. As such, it is not an organisation or a “church,” but rather a network based on Christ-centered relationships. 

All members in the network are free to pursue deeper fellowship with the Lord and with one another in any way the Lord leads them. This could include small group meetings, relational meet ups, love feasts, fellowship gatherings, conferences, mission trips, camps, WhatsApp groups, online forums, and so on. 

Please join the mailing list in order to be informed about upcoming events, resources, and blog posts.

Join the Facebook Group

In addition to the website we have set up a Facebook group to facilitate ongoing connection, sharing, and fellowship.

Please join the Facebook Group to connect with the others in the network, share Christ, arrange meet ups, and get updates about events in your area.

Events

As the Lord leads we plan events like conferences, camps, and love feasts so that all the gifts can function for the purpose of building up the Body of Christ.

Resources

We share resources that we have gained from and which have helped us go deeper with the Lord and with one another.

Connecting

We connect from house to house and from coffee shop to coffee shop with a desire to build close-knit relationships that are Christ-centered, real, and intentional.

Sharing

Sharing the portion that we have each been given by the Lord is vital for our growth in the Body. This can be in home meetings, around the Lord's table, via WhatsApp, on Facebook or any other platform the Lord provides.

Learning

We want to grow in our knowledge of the Lord and His purposes. For this reason we are intentional about growing in our understanding of the whole counsel of God as revealed in the Bible.

Singing

A big part of growing deeper in the Lord is learning to enjoy Him through singing. We have written and collected a number songs and hymns that we use to enjoy the Lord together.

Intimacy

We believe that everything flows out of intimacy with God. For this reason we pursue deeper fellowship with the Lord in multiple different ways. We enjoy daily intimacy with Him in our personal lives and also pursue knowing Him intimately together.

Discipleship

As disciples of Jesus we are learning to follow Him day by day by learning to deny our self-life, grow in His love, be led by the Spirit, and be conformed to His image and nature. We believe that this is best done together with others, and so we pursue multiple forms of mutual discipleship and growth.

Ministry

The Lord has provided gifts for the purpose of equipping His people for the work of ministry. We give space to those who have a burden to minister Christ to us and take seriously that which the Lord releases through them. We also encourage saints to serve the greater Body with Christ-centered ministry.

Serving

A big part of maturing in Christ is learning to be compelled by God's love to serve. In addition to serving the household of God, we encourage brothers and sisters to participate with God in serving those who are foremost on His heart, the poor, the lost, the naked, the hungry, the destitute, the homeless, the oppressed, and the marginalised.

Missions

God has as eternal purpose to have a Bride, a Body, a House, and a Family. He achieves this purpose by releasing the Gospel of the Kingdom to all the ends of the earth. And we get to partner with Him in this through growing as citizens of His Kingdom and intentionally displaying and sharing the good news of His Kingdom to others. .

Oneness

We fundamentally believe that every born again believer is one in Christ with every other believer, no matter their unique beliefs and practices. For this reason we are intentional about "blending" with all other believers in our cities and around the world.
