Armed With Iron: Preparing for and Responding to Spiritual Battles

June 5th - July 1st

Dr. Dan Sheard

This course on spiritual warfare will cover 16 characters in the Bible who lived and triumphed with power and victory over hatred, enemies, hypocritical people, loss of a spouse, failure, personal compromise, demonic oppression, family burdens, and a host of other seemingly impossible obstacles. The scope of study will be people who were surrounded by hardships yet simultaneously lived effective and vibrant spiritual lives. What can we learn from Jesus, David, Paul, Ruth, and other chosen people about crushing satanic attacks in personal ways? We will walk together through clear and effective principles of spiritual warfare by looking at the details of their faith in a living and mighty God. These people were tremendously weak and human, sometimes even given to mistakes and failures, yet God gave them victory out of their weaknesses. God wants you to live in deliverance, not simply dabble in it.

The Spirit of the Story: Knowing the Holy Spirit
Through the Whole Bible

July 31st - Aug 27th

Nik Godshall

There has never been a generation in which God’s people did not need the power of His Spirit. The assertion of this course is that throughout the Bible, the Holy Spirit is often at the forefront of the divine work to advance the Kingdom of God against the powers of evil. This victorious advance finds its ultimate expression in Jesus the Messiah and His triumph over evil. The Messiah’s victory is now continued by the Spirit through Messiah’s people, and always in ways that reflect the Spirit’s activity seen throughout the biblical narrative. This pattern of activity seen before, during, and after Jesus’ victory shows that it is essential for the Messiah’s people to understand that they are fully participant in the Spirit’s work of divine conquest and thus, fully participant in His Kingdom-advancing power. The Spirit comes upon Christians to make them living threats to the powers of evil.
