Designed to help you become an overcomer: great for individuals and small groups
The life of a Christian is not just about arriving at some destination; it’s a journey of steps, one right after the other. 21 Days To Breakthrough is based on the belief that the habits we form, the sin we embrace, the forces we struggle against, are very real and can be overcome because they have been defeated by Jesus at Calvary.

God's Order for FamilyLife Workbook - Immediate Download
Designed to help you understand the Biblical basis and importance of God's family life
This 76-page book will help you discover and recover the pattern of godly relationships in the home and with our loving Father God. The most effective manner to train and equip our families for any skill is by providing effective models and opportunities to practice the skill itself. Jesus used a show, tell, release, and supervise model of training. After calling the disciples He took them along with Him, teaching and healing the sick as He went. Then, after He thought the disciples had seen and learned enough to try for themselves, He commissioned, empowered, instructed, and sent them out to do the same things. This model of training should be no different for those desiring to bring others into a complete understanding and walk in Christ likeness.

22 immutable defining characteristics of spiritual maturity
Many churches measure success by attendance records, size of budgets, and square footage. However, Jesus uses a higher standard: "A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. By this all men will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another." (John 13:34,35). Our church “scorecard” should be based on the Great Commandment and Jesus’ Great Commission with emphasis on accountability, discipleship, true life transformation, and spiritual maturity. In order to experience spiritual maturity, we must also understand that growth comes by grace and it is God alone who is our resource. According to the Bible, there are 22 immutable defining characteristics of spiritually mature disciples. This tool will assist you in evaluating, monitoring and measuring your discipleship processes, assist you in the Biblical selection and evaluation of elders and potential church leadership.
