In this verse-by-verse study of Ephesians we will travel back to the creation of the Church by God through Jesus and discover all that God intended His Church to be. Find out what it means to be Christ-like, while learning why and how to use your spiritual gifts. We are all God's children whether we are a husband, wife, child, employee or employer, study how we are to relate to one another. The second part of this study is devoted to spiritual warfare. In this section you will use both the Old and New Testaments to witness God's character and read His promises to us as we fight in this unseen realm. He has given us armor and weapons to fight and defend ourselves while telling us the battle is His. Stephanie Pavlantos truly loves God's word. Raised in Dayton, Ohio as one of six children in a loving Christian family, she was strongly influenced by her father who she says modeled the importance of prayer and studying Scripture. Stephanie also credits a "godly mentor" who taught her the truths of God's word. She earned a B.S. degree in Biology from Ohio Northern University and is a certified histotechnologist. In addition to other experiences, Stephanie spent two years of her career doing cancer research. Throughout her life, she has always been active within the church, teaching many women's Bible studies as well as both children and adult Sunday school classes. She and her husband Mike have three children who she home schooled. Currently she is a stay-at-home mom, a church board member, and Sunday school superintendent.
