Faith: What Christians Believe, Why They Believe It, and Why It Matters, The

Charles W. Colson

2008    256 Pages    (Zondervan)

ISBN 13: 9780310276036    ISBN 10: 0310276039

Rightly understood and rightly communicated, the Christian faith is one of great joy. It is an invitation to God’s kingdom, where tears are replaced by laughter and longing hearts find their purpose and their home. This is the heart of the gospel: God’s search to reclaim us and love us as his own. But have we truly grasped this? Those of us who have disdained Christianity as a religion of bigotry---have we repudiated the genuine article or merely demonstrated our own prejudice and ignorance [...]

Rightly understood and rightly communicated, the Christian faith is one of great joy. It is an invitation to God’s kingdom, where tears are replaced by laughter and longing hearts find their purpose and their home. This is the heart of the gospel: God’s search to reclaim us and love us as his own. But have we truly grasped this? Those of us who have disdained Christianity as a religion of bigotry---have we repudiated the genuine article or merely demonstrated our own prejudice and ignorance? Those of us who are Christians---have we deeply apprehended the mission of Jesus, and do our ways and character faithfully reflect his beauty? From the nature of God, to the human condition, to the work of Jesus, to God’s coming kingdom, and all that lies between, how well do we understand the foundational truths of Christianity and their implications? The Faith is a book for our troubled times and for decades to come, for Christians and non-Christians alike. It is the most important book Chuck Colson and Harold Fickett have ever written: a thought-provoking, soul-searching, and powerful manifesto of the great, historical central truths of Christianity that have sustained believers through the centuries. Brought to immediacy with vivid, true stories, here is what Christianity is really about and why it is a religion of hope, redemption, and beauty. [less]

What is E4?
E4 represents what God wants to happen in the life of a follower of Christ. It’s about being EMPOWERED to live a supernatural life.

Session 1: E4 Overview - Encounter / Establish / Equip / Engage

Session 2: ENCOUNTER GOD – Encountering Jesus in the fullness of His love and power. Supernatural encounters with Jesus Christ kindles life change in us.

Session 3: GET ESTABLISHED – Established in God’s Word and in loving relationships. The Bible grounds us in God’s truth. Relationships with God’s people grounds us in love.

Session 4: GET EQUIPPED to ENGAGE the WORLD – Equipped to share the words and do the works of Jesus. Training enables us to effectively share the words and do the works of Jesus.
Engaged to take God’s love and power to a needy world.
The goal of God’s redemptive work in us is that we might be agents of redemption in our world, taking His love and power to the world.

How do we measure our Empowered Life?
The Spiritual Health Assessment and Spiritual Health Plan (page 26-Back Cover) is a tool (included in this study). It measures your spiritual health at a particular point in time. It has been developed to help you evaluate potential areas of growth in your walk with Jesus Christ. The questions are simple and address each of the areas in E4. The goal is neither to score high nor compare oneself with others. Rather, this is a tool that will help you evaluate your spiritual health, and give you direction for developing E4 Life Transformation Action Steps. [less]

5 Session DVD & Study Guide compliments the 1st 6 chapters of Multiply by Francis Chan.

Session 1: Making life’s most important commitment

A disciple is a learner committed to replicating the life of his or her teacher. Jesus calls us to nothing less than that today!

Session 2: Answering life’s most important calling

Jesus said making disciples is a simple two-step process: baptize them in his name and teach them to do what he says. Yes, you’ve got be one to make one, but everyone can do it!

Session 3: Motivated by life’s most important catalyst

So what’s it take to truly carry out Jesus’ assignment to make disciples? It takes a heart that’s full to overflowing with Christ’s love!

Session 4: Joining life’s most important community

The Church has always been Jesus’ “Plan A” to spread the Gospel throughout the world. There is no “Plan B.” He did not intend us to do this alone but rather united in true community with other Christ followers in local church bodies.

Session 5: Pursuing life’s most important cause

Following Jesus leads to an ever-expanding vision and a heart for making a difference in the world—in his name and with his power.

What could be more amazing than living in such a way that you experience all the most important things in life? Two thousand years ago, Jesus walked up to a handful of people and said “Follow me!” Now, through the Exponential message series, you can explore what it really means to be a disciple of Jesus Christ and to influence others to follow him.

Home Run

2015    160 Pages    (LifeTogether Ministries)

ISBN 13: 9781940077536    ISBN 10: 1940077532

Just like in the game of baseball, the way to win in life involves a clear path, some guiding principles, a great team, and a lot of fun. Achieving victory in life is like rounding the bases in baseball—you can’t skip any bases if you want to have a Home Run life! The basics of baseball aren’t complicated: Through practice and preparation, your game will improve the more you play. Winning at life is the same: everyone can understand the basics and step up to bat. When a whole team gets on [...]

Just like in the game of baseball, the way to win in life involves a clear path, some guiding principles, a great team, and a lot of fun. Achieving victory in life is like rounding the bases in baseball—you can’t skip any bases if you want to have a Home Run life! The basics of baseball aren’t complicated: Through practice and preparation, your game will improve the more you play. Winning at life is the same: everyone can understand the basics and step up to bat. When a whole team gets on the field together, that’s when the fun begins and the Home Run life happens!

Gather some friends and grow!

Get the full impact of this series by gathering your Home Run team! Grab a group of friends or join a small group to receive weekly teachings from Pastor Cal, helpful topics for discussion, and a full-color study book.

Start your journey to home plate by choosing one of the options listed below!

There are 6 sessions:

Session 1: Batter Up!

Just as every baseball diamond is comprised of 4 bases which a batter must touch if he wants to score, so in life there are four critical components we must incorporate into our lives if we want to win at life. What are those 4 components: 1) Home Plate: We’ve got to win in our Commitment to God; 2) 1st Base: We’ve got to win in our Character; 3) 2nd base: We’ve got to win in our Connection with others; and 3rd base: We’ve got to win in our Competence. We’ve got to reach each of these bases if we want to score! Skip any of them and we’ll suffer loss!

Session 2: Home Plate: How to Win with God

Jesus said that he had come that we might live a “full” or abundant life. Many people today are living empty lives, unfulfilled lives, and frustrated lives, but not full lives. So in this message we’re going to look at how we can live full lives, by connecting with the power and purpose of our coach, the Lord Jesus Christ, the One who has written the game plan. The only way we will ultimately succeed in life is if we first start by becoming dependent upon him for all the power we need to live out the purpose he has called us to fulfill!

Session 3: First Base: How to Win Within

Many people with great talent have failed to win in life because they thought they could skip first base, the development of character. The political, business, sports, entertainment and even church worlds, are littered with the sad sagas of those with impressive credentials and amazing gifts, who nevertheless short-circuited their success because they failed to win within. In God’s game plan, we have to make sure we learn and live the lessons of first base if we want to lead a Home run life, because failing here, we will eventually be “called out.”

Session 4: Second Base: How to Win with Others

I once heard someone define success as “when those who know you best love and respect you the most.” Something about that definition spoke to my heart because we all know intuitively that nothing we do in life really matters if in the end, we sacrificed our most important relationships to get it. If we’re going to live a Home Run life, we can’t skip second base where we learn to love, serve and give our best to others! Live your life such that those who bury you with tears one day, will not have tried to “bury you” with glee, before your time.

Session 5: Third Base: How to Win Results

Results matter! God put you on earth to do something, so do your best at what he put you here to do. The important thing is to remember that winning at life is not just about running to third base and back home! Do what you were made to do. Do it well! Do it with excellence! Be as impressive as you can possibly be to the glory of God. God is not glorified by your playing “small ball.” Swing for the fence in your job! Hit the home run! Be the best you can be! But!!! Do it within the context of great commitment to God, great character within, and great connection with others. Your results won’t matter if you leave those other three behind!

Session 6: Headed for Home: How to Keep Winning God’s Way!

As we wrap up this series we’re going to look at what it means to live our lives for the glory of God! Oh sure, it’s fun to get our name in lights. It’s great to be recognized and rewarded for what we’ve done. There’s nothing wrong in wanting our lives to make the greatest impact possible. But at the end of the day, the question is, “Do we want people to be wowed by us, or by the God we serve?” Do we want them to glorify us or the God who indwells us and empowers us? The greatest joy in life is doing all that we do for the glory of God so that at the end of the day, when we’ve led a Home Run life, people will be drawn and attracted to the God we served! [less]
