Training Disciplers to help every Christian grow to Maturity and Fruitfulness in Christ.

There are some foundational principles that all believers, especially newer believers, need to understand.

I think most church leaders would agree that the Body of Christ is not having the impact on the world that we would desire. There are a myriad of reasons that can be put forth as to why the Church is not more spiritually healthy.

We believe that wherever believers gather, "Balanced" Discipleship should be practiced. In other words, both "Corporate" and "Personal" discipleship are needed for healthy spiritual growth.

We believe that "Personalized Discipleship" is the missing ingredient for producing healthy spiritual growth in the Church. The Apostle Paul presents a model for "Spiritual Parenting" in 1 Thess. 2:3-13(see also Lesson 2-2)

"Understanding the Christian Life"

This lesson will help me understand a practical overview of the Normal Christian Life and to help me mentally connect the pieces to God's overall plan for my life.

God desires for me to grow in my understanding of Him and wants to gradually transform my understanding of Him so that I increasingly view life from His perspective because a godly perspective produces godly behavior.

Like physical birth, spiritual birth is the entrance into a new life. This lesson will explain some things that happen to a believer at conversion.

Mankind is a unique creation of God, set apart from the rest of His creation. People alone have been given a "spirit", through which they can know God.

The main purpose of this lesson is to help clarify the events which have led to my present condition as a believer having two natures. A number of foundational Biblical principles will be introduced which should help me to more easily understand other truths as they are presented in subsequent lessons.

Many believers perceive the Holy Spirit to be an influence or a force that pushes them toward a good. In reality, we need to think of the Holy Spirit as a person that we can interact with.

This lesson presents the Lordship decision as an event, which preferably takes place at conversion, followed by the growth process in which God’s perspective of life is increasingly becoming my perspective.

This lesson builds on the discussion of my two natures introduced in lesson 1-5. Understanding how my two natures interact will lay the groundwork for studying abiding in the next several lessons.

"To Abide" simply refers to the moment-by-moment experience of walking in harmony with the Holy Spirit without any "unresolved offenses" that are disrupting that communion.

Some principles and verses related to Abiding in the Spirit

God wants me to be free from the burden of "unresolved issues" of the PAST or the FUTURE, allowing Him freedom to produce His fruit through my life.

This lesson should help me understand my continual interaction with my two competing natures, and how that impacts my daily relationship with the Lord.

The Three Major Phases of the Christian life

This lesson helps me understand the process in which every circumstance, even those that appear insignificant, whether good or bad, pass through God’s permissive will. He uses every circumstance in His process of transforming me into a holy and useful vessel through which He can accomplish His eternal purposes.

"God will always give the very best to those who leave the choice with Him"

My level of spiritual maturity is the degree to which God's perspective of life has become my perspective.
