All of us, if we are honest, desire to change in our lives. But, as followers of Jesus, how do we get there? How do we actually experience change in the daily challenges we face, both big and small? How does faith in Christ impact how we think, feel, and act so that we are increasingly being transformed into the image of Christ? This class will encourage and equip you to see more honestly the struggles in your heart to love God and others rightly and provide a framework of how to experience real change through the power of Christ in the gospel.
