We may not be a “Bible Study,” but we still need to study the Bible.
Any community that is taking the mission of God seriously and remains a community will regularly read and study the Bible together. If you are committed to following Jesus and living all of life under his authority, you will regularly learn from the Bible. In fact, a lack of urgency to go to the Scriptures is a primary diagnostics test for a missional community. If the community isn’t desperate to learn from it, be encouraged by it, or find meaning and truth in it, they probably aren’t living on mission or in community.
