With everyday examples and trademark testimonies, Idleman draws on Scripture to reveal how three key elements can draw us closer to God and change our lives for good.Awakening to the reality of our true spiritual condition, we see ourselves and our need for a Savior with renewed honesty. This realization leads to action, obeying God's commands and following the example set by Christ. As we see in the transformation of the prodigal son, the result is a life-changing, destiny-altering collision—an AHA moment that leads us home to our loving Father. [less]

Are you really a Christian?You may think you are, but you may not be. After all, Jesus himself said that some people will do seemingly “Christian” things in his name but will not truly know him. Or maybe you know you are not a Christian and you wonder what it really means to be one.To be sure, however, there is clarity from God’s perspective. He is not confused about who does and does not know him. And though our self-awareness is certainly limited, we have been given biblical [...]

Take your group through an in-depth examination of the primary tenets of Christianity. The Apostles’ Creed was born from the apostles’ teachings. It contains essential doctrines and beliefs that summarize the gospel and the foundation of our faith. The scriptural truths contained in the creed enable us to build our Christian lives on good theology, with the knowledge that our faith is rooted in truth and a rich history. The lines of the creed aren’t mere words. They are the essence of what we confess and believe. Repeating the creed doesn’t make disciples. Incantations don’t transform us into better, more effective Christians. Creeds don’t hold any authority apart from Scripture, but they do point outside themselves to the authoritative Word of God. The Apostles’ Creed was traditionally used as a public confession before baptism. This confession of faith, given as a recitation of the creed, was understood as an act of turning away from previous pagan beliefs and fully accepting apostolic teaching. This profession identified new believers with the community of Christians. This group study from Matt Chandler and The Village Church leads to greater clarity of our religion, greater symmetry and balance as a disciple, and a more profound sense of belonging in the kingdom of God.The Apostles’ Creed Leader Kit includes a Bible Study Book and four DVDs with a promotional video and 12 50-minute sessions featuring Matt Chandler, along with short introductions by Chandler for each video segment. Session Topics: 1.    I Believe In 2.    God the Father Almighty, Creator of Heaven and Earth 3.    And in Jesus Christ, His Only Son, Our Lord 4.    Who Was Conceived by the Holy Spirit, Born of the Virgin Mary 5.    Suffered Under Pontius Pilate; Was Crucified, Dead, and Buried 6.    He Descended to Hell, the Third Day He Rose Again from the Dead 7.    He Ascended into Heaven and Sits on the Right Hand of the Father Almighty 8.    From Whence He Shall Come to Judge the Living and the Dead 9.    I Believe in the Holy Spirit 10.    The Holy Catholic Church, the Communion of Saints 11.    The Forgiveness of Sins 12.    The Resurrection of the Body and the Life Everlasting. AmenKit includes: • Bible Study Book • Four DVDs with a promotional video and 12 50-minute sessions   Features: • Comprehensive video sessions exploring each portion of the Apostles’ Creed • Biblically rooted and gospel-centered content • 12 small-group sessions that guide groups through the theological implications of the creed • Personal-study opportunities for ongoing spiritual growth • Promotional video • Social-media assets for the group leader Benefits:   • Help believers better understand the foundations of the Christian faith. • Improve evangelistic efforts by learning the fundamentals of the Christian faith. • Gain a succinct understanding of Christianity, its origins, and its basic theology. • Understand the significance of understanding and clearly professing what you believe. • Transform your group into engaged disciples of Jesus who embrace and practice the essential doctrines of their faith.

All day, every day, an invisible war rages around you — unseen, unheard, yet felt throughout every aspect of your life. A devoted, devilish enemy seeks to wreak havoc on everything that matters to you: your heart, your mind, your marriage, your children, your relationships, your resilience, your dreams, your destiny. But his battle plan depends on catching you unaware and unarmed. If you're tired of being pushed around and caught with your guard down, this study is for you.

Boundaries: When to Say Yes, How to Say No to Take Control of Your Life

Having clear boundaries is essential to a healthy, balanced lifestyle. A boundary is a personal property line that marks those things for which we are responsible. In other words, boundaries define who we are and who we are not. Boundaries impact all areas of our lives: Physical boundaries help us determine who may touch us and under what circumstances -- Mental boundaries give us the freedom to have our own thoughts and opinions -- Emotional boundaries help us to deal with our own emotions and [...]

Having clear boundaries is essential to a healthy, balanced lifestyle. A boundary is a personal property line that marks those things for which we are responsible. In other words, boundaries define who we are and who we are not. Boundaries impact all areas of our lives: Physical boundaries help us determine who may touch us and under what circumstances -- Mental boundaries give us the freedom to have our own thoughts and opinions -- Emotional boundaries help us to deal with our own emotions and disengage from the harmful, manipulative emotions of others -- Spiritual boundaries help us to distinguish God's will from our own and give us renewed awe for our Creator -- Often, Christians focus so much on being loving and unselfish that they forget their own limits and limitations. When confronted with their lack of boundaries, they ask: - Can I set limits and still be a loving person? - What are legitimate boundaries? - What if someone is upset or hurt by my boundaries? - How do I answer someone who wants my time, love, energy, or money? - Aren't boundaries selfish? - Why do I feel guilty or afraid when I consider setting boundaries? Dr. Henry Cloud and Dr. John Townsend offer biblically-based answers to these and other tough questions, showing us how to set healthy boundaries with our parents, spouses, children, friends, co-workers, and even ourselves.

There will be a cost. There will be a reward. Do Christians in the contemporary church have the courage to counter the culture?Features: Biblically rooted and gospel-centered content Leader material (guides to questions, general leadership, etc.) Personal study segmentsBenefits: Understand timeless biblical truth as the lens through which you view current events and trends.

The Reformers viewed the gospel as not merely one thing among many in the life of a church but rather the means by which the church exists. When the gospel is rightly declared and applied to God’s people, the church becomes “a creature of the Word.” She understands, embraces, and lives out the reality of Christ’s birth, life, death, and resurrection in more than her doctrinal statement. The gospel impacts all the church is and does.Creature of the Word lays out this [...]

Authors Matt Chandler, Eric Geiger, and Josh Patterson write what will become a center- ing discussion piece for those whose goal is to be part of a church that has its theology, culture, and practice completely saturated in the gospel.

It has been five hundred years since Martin Luther nailed his 95 Theses to the door of the All Saints' Church in Wittenberg, Germany. Luther's theses called for the reform of the church and served as the catalyst for the Protestant Reformation. Its impact is still felt today. This Bible study examines the five core truths that came from the Reformation, now referred to as the solas. Group members will explore these essential convictions of the faith and emerge more immersed in the gospel of Jesus Christ. The solas include: Sola Scriptura (by Scripture alone) Sola gratia (by grace alone) Sola fide (through faith alone) Solus Christus (through Christ alone) Soli Deo gloria (glory to God alone) How is the Reformation still relevant today? As political pressure mounts, morality drifts with today's culture, and evangelicalism becomes more and more refined in a post-Christian world, it's even more important to hold the convictions of the great Reformation closer than ever. In short, the solas point us to vibrant Christian community as well as personal identity in Christ. As you'll see in this study, the solas are more than cold Latin terms that academics throw around in church-history books. The five solas, like the Reformation itself, are intensely practical. They were the DNA of the Reformation and are still the DNA of the church today. They are grounded in a real-life, everyday following of Jesus. They're the most important, basic scriptural truths you can ever believe. We stand on the shoulders of Christians in the past, and knowing where we came from will help us keep moving forward with passion and biblical clarity. Echoes of the Reformation Leader Kit contains a Bible Study Book and 1 DVD with a promotional video and six 15- to 20-minute video sessions featuring authors Kevin DeYoung, Al Mohler, and Trevin Wax. These panel discussions introduce the topic, overview historical significance, explore the theological meanings of the solas, and include illustrations for applying these key transformative truths. Features: - Videos featuring authors Kevin DeYoung, Al Mohler, and Trevin Wax - Biblically rooted and gospel-centered content - Six small-group sessions that include an introductory session and application of the five solas - Individual study opportunities for ongoing spiritual growth - Six-session Bible Study Book with group and personal components - Promotional content, including video - Social-media assets for the group leader Benefits: - Give group members a better understanding of the Reformation's impact on today's church. - Understand the weighty importance of the inspired Word of God. - Help group members discern the theological nuances of grace and its role in the life of a disciple. - Enhance a believer's understanding of the biblical and historical depth of the Christian faith. - Realize that Christ alone provides all life's answers. - Show group members how to live life for the glory of God and renew their commitment to this biblical mandate.
