Christian Formation

"until Christ is formed in you" (Galatians 4:19)

Christian formation is a journey. It is God's process of forming believers into the character of Christ by the ministry of the Spirit. This process involves the transformation of the whole person (head, heart and hands) resulting in a life of service to others and witness for Christ.

Where are you on the journey to Christ-likeness?

Take stock of where you are now. Reflect on the state of...

your HEAD – What do I need to learn to live the way Christ lived?
your HEART – Who do I need to love the way Christ loved?
your HANDS – How do I serve the way Christ served?
