Shape

God has given each believer a spiritual gift that He wills us to use for His glory, but we oftentimes don’t use it, because we either don’t know what they are or we simply don’t know how to use them. In this course we explore these topics:
  • Take a spiritual gifts and personality profile
  • Explore your spiritual gifts and your personality type.
  • Learn how to use those gifts for the glory of God.

Armor of God

The Armor of God is an amazing metaphor for what we need in our spiritual lives. Paul sets the scene for us: We are fighting a war, a spiritual one, and the stakes are higher than they have ever been in human history.
In this powerful 5 week series based on Ephesians 6:10-18, you’ll learn how God provided us with the protection we need to be bold and stand firm when storms arise. You’ll learn how the Apostle Paul instructs Christians on how to fight spiritual warfare.
