The heart of Christianity is not a ritual or a structure, but a person: Jesus Christ. But even as his followers, our vision of Jesus can get muddied by man-made theories of who he was. Whether you're a seasoned believer or a brand-new Christian, come walk in the footsteps of his first disciples to see him afresh: as Teacher, Healer, Shepherd, Servant, Savior and Risen Lord. These six sessions lay the foundation for radical discipleship as our hearts are once again captured by who he is.
Why should we pattern our lives after Christs and accept his teachings as the ultimate way to live? Because of who he is. This six-week guide lets groups experience Jesus as Teacher, Healer, Shepherd, Servant, Savior, and Risen Lord.
