Spiritual formation

Growth and development are important aspects for all areas of life: physical, emotional, and spiritual. As a Christian, we are admonished to be spiritually minded and strong (Romans 8:6;  Ephesians 3:16); however, the intentional process of strengthening and growing our spiritual life is often ignored or unknown. This course is designed to help students better understand the biblical principles that help us to form and grow ourselves spiritually mature in Christ as well as better equip us to steward and cultivate intimacy with God. We will cover topics such as humility, honor, faith, love, prayer, journaling, other spiritual disciplines, and spiritual warfare. 

Orthodox christian  Belief

Controversy of theological beliefs within Christianity in something that has been present since its founding. Many of the epistles in the New Testament are directed towards such controversies or heretical theology. As such, it is important to understand the foundational and orthodox beliefs that make up Christianity. This course will take an introductory look at major theological beliefs throughout Church History that form the foundational orthodox beliefs of Christianity. Students will explore the Christian consensus of certain theological issues, the diversity of belief found within orthodox Christianity, and alternative views that are outside orthodox belief.

inner healing

As believers in Christ, Jesus has set us free so that we may live free. This means freedom from any bondage, pain, lies, or effects of the enemy in our life. While some of these issues might be present in our physical body, often they lie under the surface in the realm of the unseen - the soul and spirit. This course will shine a light on the dark trafficking of the enemy in our life and expose the many techniques that he uses to take away our freedom and life in Jesus. It will also go through a biblical model of how to remove these issues and allow the healing power of God to invade those areas of needed healing.

prophetic foundations

Within the human heart, there is a desire to hear, know, and speak for God. Many people hear more than they think. It is in knowing the ways of God and His love that this is fully expressed, and God is looking for a people who can express His multifaceted nature and glory to all of the earth. In this course, students will discover the biblical and central emphasis of hearing God speak. Students will be equipped to learn the various manners and methods through which God speaks as described throughout the Bible. They will also seek to better discover and understand His character so as to better represent Him, and to effectively communicate His voice. Hearing the voice of God is central to the life of a believer.

“Pursue love yet desire earnestly spiritual gifts, but especially that you may prophesy.”
   - I Cor. 14:1.
