CFM 302

Identity-Based Spiritual Formation

CFM 302, Identity Based Spiritual Formation, is designed to complement CFM 301 (Leading Teens to Freedom in Christ). Freedom and maturity are the pillars of sanctification, or what the Bible refers to as transformed living by the renewing of our minds. (Romans 12:2)  It is our deepest hope and prayer that you will find this course to be personally challenging and practically useful in your high calling to reach emerging generations with the fullness of the gospel of Jesus Christ.  The course lays out the teaching of Jesus and His method of making disciples. The apostles used this same strategy and the epistles to the early Church confirm it. Identity Based Spiritual Formation begins with the believer’s identity in Christ. Once a teen begins to understand and personalize the “new birth” and who they have now become through faith in Jesus, a whole new realm of possibility opens, and they are free to discover the victorious, righteously productive life that Jesus died to give them.
The principles in this course are set forth with the highest degree of confidence in the Scriptures, the teachings of Freedom in Christ Ministries and years of experience and fruitfulness in teen ministry.  Rather than lead with the byproduct of spiritual maturity (good works and holy living), CFM 302, Identity Based Spiritual Formation, stresses the truth of the teen’s identity in Christ with the understanding that sanctified behavior follows sanctified belief.
