“Spiritual formation is a process of being conformed to the image of Christ for the sake of others” (Dr. Robert Mulholland)
Spiritual formation is ongoing, a journey back to God and greater intimacy with God. It is not a simple “fix” to become who God designed us to be. Being transformed into Christlikeness includes the Word of God, prayer, discernment in our life choices, healing, commitment to community and above all learning to love and experience God. “Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind. This is the first and greatest commandment.” (Matt. 22: 37-38)
In order for our development not to become self-centered, authentic spiritual formation will always be for the sake of others. This is the essence of love summarized by Christ in the second great commandment: “Love your neighbor as yourself. All the Law and the Prophets hang on these two commandments.” (Matt 18: 39-40) The Spiritual Formation Certificate is offered to help you live in such a way that God is glorified in your life.
