A revival is stirring in North America by people who’ve surrendered their whole lives to the Spirit, Christians committed to transforming themselves and the world around them. This movement marks a shift in the way people are engaging faith. This new generation doesn’t think from belief to action but rather from action to reflection on beliefs, tending to care more about what faith does than what it tells us to believe.
But faithful action is always inspired and sustained by the basic truths. As Christians, we have a rich tradition of passing our faith from one generation to the next through teaching, discipleship, and sharing life. According to the authors, we need to carry on this tradition today, teaching Biblical truths and celebrating those who’ve passed their faith to the next generation.
This DVD study presents stories of faith and explores why Christians do what they do, delving into the core convictions of a faith that leads to action. Your group will learn basic Christian truths and what it means to build community among believers.
