Spiritual Development Study:

Unleashed: Being Conformed to the Image of Christ

by Eric Mason

Unleashed coverGod's will is not just for us to be born again but for us to grow into spiritual adults. God intends all of the Christian life to be a process of growth in Christlikeness. Believers can clearly understand how we can intentionally cooperate with the Holy Spirit’s work to grow us into the likeness of Jesus.

This 6-session study is a biblically based, practical tool that unleashes believers for spiritual growth in Jesus Christ. Taking into account ways God uses different stages and seasons in our lives to shape us, this study helps participants understand the lifelong process of spiritual growth and maximize God's work to conform them to the image of Christ.

by James Macdonald

Men Matter.

ALM post

In many ways, our culture paints an unsavory and unseemly picture of manhood. The standard for how a man acts and conducts himself continues to be lowered. While some might see men's roles as insignificant, God tells a different story.

In this six-session study, Pastor James MacDonald will challenge you to take hold of your God-given role. Through video teaching, group discussion, and personal Bible study, he will urge you to live out Paul's instruction in 1 Corinthians 16:13-14:
