Then, we will learn how to read, accurately interpret, and apply each one to our lives as disciples.REGISTERCore Equip CoursesHoly HabitsBecoming Like Jesus from the Inside OutJesus called His disciples to live His life, His way.

(Christian Witness) True NorthNavigating Your Journey as a Disciple by the Truths of the BibleIt’s important that disciples of Jesus develop knowledge, understanding, and convictions concerning what they believe about the core doctrines of Christianity– and why. This course will help you build a firm foundation for life on God’s Word so that you can confidently and faithfully live by His truth in an ever-changing world. Gospel FormedHow the Gospel Shapes All of LifeThe gospel of Jesus Christ is the core message of the Christian faith. But is not given only to save us from eternal judgment; it is meant to transform us for daily living — shaping who we are, how we live, how we relate to others, how we suffer, how we engage the culture, and more.PeacemakingResolving Everyday ConflictWherever people relate, conflict happens. Every person is coming out of, is in the middle of, or is entering a season of conflict. God calls His children to take the initiative as peacemakers, living out the reconciling promises of the gospel. This course will teach a simple, Biblical process for processing conflict and pursuing peace with others in all kinds of relationships. Additional CoursesGospel-Centered MarriageChristian marriage is a mystery that calls a man and a woman to “become one flesh” for a lifetime. But that journey is no fairy-tale; it requires that a couple get real about their sin and brokenness, and lean together into the hope of Jesus’ gospel as they navigate communication, conflict, sex, gender roles, and more.
