DISCIPLESHIP PATH

SEARCHING FOR MEANING IN CHRIST | I am in the beginning phases of my walk with Jesus. I’m interested in developing spiritual practices such as prayer, bible study, Christian community, and service.

DEEPENING YOUR LIFE IN CHRIST | Jesus is my Savior and the leader (Lord) of my life. My faith is moving from my head to my heart. My spiritual practices have developed into daily habits that are increasing my love of God and love of neighbor.

CENTERING YOUR LIFE IN CHRIST | I have moved from self-centeredness to Christ like self-sacrifice. I have embraced my identity in Christ and have surrendered to his call on my life. My faith has moved significantly beyond the walls of the church to witness to and disciple others in my sphere of influence.

Worshipping Trinity: Coming Back to the Heart of Worship

Deepening Your Life in Christ

If worship is God centered, and God is the Trinity, then worship should be Trinity centered. ‘Worshipping Trinity’ explores the meaning and implications of that simple claim. Written for church leaders, worship leaders, and songwriters, as well as for those interested in theology, this volume explains why the Trinity matters so much and explores practical ways our worship can be made more Trinitarian. This second edition is fully updated and expanded.

3) “Sozo Saved Healed Delivered: A Journey Into Freedom with the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit”

Centering Your Life in Christ

The Biblical concept of salvation comes from the Greek word ‘Sozo’ and has a holistic implication. Power and victory flowed through the New Testament Church because the early Christians understood how to live out their salvation in a way that impacted every area of their lives—spirit, soul, and body. In SOZO, Dawna DeSilva and Teresa Liebscher provide revelatory teaching and miraculous testimonies that paint a stunning picture of how to experience Heaven’s freedom in every area of your life.
