Spiritual Formation

The Bible tells us that the goal of our spiritual life is to become like Christ. It doesn’t take us long to realize that the transformation we desire will not take place by imitating Christ in our own strength. Only by placing ourselves in God’s hands and inviting Him to change us can we be spiritually transformed. The spiritual formation courses offered here will guide you into learning the various means by which true spiritual growth can occur, including these: Bible study, prayer, fellowship, witnessing, worship, and service. The focus of these studies is to help you become like Christ through obeying God’s Word in the power of the Holy Spirit.
