What is a Life in the Spirit?
Connecting the Past with the Present
Life in the Spirit Seminars
Goals of a Life in the Spirit Seminar
The goal of the Life in the Spirit Seminars is very limited. They are designed to help people find a new and fuller and better life as Christians by laying or strengthening the foundation of a truly Christian life.
“No other foundation can anyone lay than that which is laid, which is Jesus Christ.”
– 1 Corinthians 3: 11
The seminars, then, are concerned with the most basic part of Christian life: establishing a person in Christ. To accomplish that goal, there are four things the Life in the Spirit Seminars try to do.
1. To help those who come to the seminars establish or re-establish or deepen a personal relationship with Christ;
2. To help those who come to the seminars to yield to the action of the Holy Spirit in their lives so that they can begin to experience his presence and can begin to experience him working in them and through them;
3. To help those who come to the seminars be joined to Christ more fully becoming part of a community or a group of Christians with whom they can share their Christian life and from whom they can receive support in that life;
4. To help them begin to make use of effective means of growth in their relationship with Christ.
