Free to Become All that Christ Wants Us to Be

We have stressed the importance of understanding God’s plan and where we are at in his plan so that we will know how to live appropriately. We now live in the new covenant era, which has wonderful implications for how we serve others. We are not bound by the old covenant order. In order to be free to serve all, we must operate according to the law of Christ, and this perspective is crucial in order to have the wisdom to live in a land full of idols. Many times the exact same action may be right or wrong depending on the context, on its meaning at that point in the story. If it is participation in idolatry, it is terribly wrong. If it is not, then it is ours in Christ.

Join us as we are trained by the Word of God to surrender our rights and serve others for the sake of the gospel.
