Freedom In Christ Course


So often, Christians can strive to do, think, say all the right things, yet be held back by something we can’t quite put our finger on. Maybe baggage from the past: personal and spiritual conflicts. Maybe we’ve grown to believe the wrong ways of thinking the world fills our minds with. Maybe we find ourselves in seemingly endless sin-confess-sin-confess cycles. Sometimes we just find it impossible to live out what we believe. Somehow it just isn’t that simple in practice.

Freedom In Christ can help. This isn’t a ‘quick fix’ or wacky methodology. It’s a thoroughly Biblical understanding of what it means to be a child of God and what follows naturally from that. The good news is that when Jesus said the truth would set us free, he meant it!

For years, Christian teaching about how to live has been all about “do this every day”, “don’t do that any more”, “successful Christians behave like this”. So we end up simply acting like Christians. But read any of Paul’s letters and we get half way before we find instructions on how to behave. First he concentrates on what’s already been done; our “riches” in Christ (Eph 1:18). Because it’s not what we do that determines who we are — it’s who we are that determines what we do.

Freedom in Christ helps Christians grasp the amazing truth of their identity in Christ, teach them to recognise and resist the devil’s deception, and help them move on.  If we are prepared to let God in to all parts of our lives, it is likely to revolutionise our relationship with him.  No matter how long or short a time it is since we became a Christian, everyone can benefit from this course.

Christchurch Baptist Church runs the Freedom in Christ course once a year,  To find out more visit the Freedom in Christ website, or contact the church office.
