THE HEART OF GOD AND THE CROSS
The Bible uses many pictures to reveal the nature of God to us. The Heart of God and the Cross gives an overview of the different aspects of the nature of God. God relates to us as His children, His sons and daughters. He wants us to run so that others will look at us and want to know the secret of our success in life. A true understanding of the cross not only helps us understand the nature of God, it also provides an understanding of the many benefits and the privileges a relationship with God means for our individual life.
THE WORD OF GOD
In this topic we teach God’s word, first place and final authority. The Word of God is your handbook for life. You will learn to understand the nature and power of God, learn how to correctly handle the Word of God as well as understanding the purpose and application of God’s Word t o the life He destined for us.
FAITH AND GOD’S COVENANT
The outcomes of our life are determined by the condition of our spirit. A successful life starts with a powerful revelation of God. This topic will focus on a second key to expanding our inner-man – releasing the power of faith. This starts off with grasping an understanding of faith and then releasing the power of faith in your life. The nature of your relationship with God is revealed in the Bible in different ways. Perhaps the most powerful revelation of all comes through an understanding of covenant. To truly understand the nature of your relationship with God we explore the covenant relationship we as His children have with Him.
WORSHIP AND THE SPIRIT-FILLED LIFE
True worship connects your spirit with the Spirit of God, which transforms the outcomes of your life. The outcomes of your life are also determined by the condition of your spirit. To enlarge our revelation of God requires us to grow and mature on the inside. The final keys to a deeper revelation of God is to know the Person of the Holy Spirit and to understand the operation of God’s Spirit within us.
LIVING FOR THE CAUSE
To do life well, to live a life of impact, to walk within the eternal plan and purpose of God; we must have an expansive revelation of who God is. From this flows a revelation of who we are and what our eternal purpose is, The Cause. One of the great keys to living the abundant life is changing the way we see our life.
TRANSFORMING YOUR THOUGHT LIFE
The Bible teaches about your identity and the importance of building a powerful perception of your value and destiny. In this subject you will learn about the power of having your perception on life line up with what God sees for your life.
THE OVERCOMER AND THE OVERCOMING POWER OF THE CHURCH
We will look at the importance of not only knowing your God-given identity, but also walking in your destiny as an overcomer. One of the keys to this is to understand the importance of aligning your life with the one thing on earth that God has promised will withstand the assaults of hell – the Church. A revelation of your authority will catapult you into, and keep you on course with, your destiny.
THOSE WHO ARE PLANTED IN THE HOUSE
As written in Psalm 92:13, it is those who are planted in the House of the
Lord who flourish, not those who merely attend! The House of God is the God given
attachment and environment for your life. As you will learn, when you are planted in the House you are positioned to grow and expand into the abundance God has provided to build your life.
ATTITUDES THAT BUILD THE HOUSE
