God wants us to continue growing toward spiritual maturity: that is, to become like Jesus in the way we think, feel, and act. As we develop Christlike character, we bring glory to God. The Bible says Christ wants His body to grow strong, until we are united by our faith and by our understanding of the Son of God. Then we will be mature, just as Christ is, and we will be completely like him. (Ephesians 4:13) A vital tool in our journey toward spiritual maturity is ongoing Bible study.

RightNow Media Video Series: Psalm 119 by Matt Chandler
Even the most mature believers face dark nights of the soul. During those times, God seems distant, his Word feels dry, and the vibrant intimacy we knew before seems absent, leaving us wondering, “Where is the Lord in this?” In Psalm 119, Matt Chandler aims to introduce viewers to the words of King David, who experienced similar seasons of life. Serving as the anchor for the study, Psalm 119 demonstrates the power of God’s Word in the lives of believers and its ability to provide a warm blanket for the soul.

Ephesians: Relationships with One Another
Ephesians deals with topics at the very core of what it means to be a Christian, both in faith and in practice. Ephesians is one of Paul’s most formal letters dealing with what God has done for us and what our life should be like in response. Although Paul does not address specific sins as in some of his other letters, Ephesians is a true playbook for followers of Jesus.

Seeing Clearly: A Christian Worldview
This interactive course will walk through the questions both apologists and sociologists have identified as being the universal questions of man—What is man? Who is God? Where do ethics come from? What is the universe and where did it come from?—as well as look at how other religions answer these questions. This class will be heavy on scripture analysis as we look at how culture reflects worldview.
