Christian formation is the Spirit’s work of forming us into the person of Jesus Christ. As Christ is formed in us we are empowered to live missional lives characterized by “love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, generosity, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control” . Christian formation is our destiny as God’s image bearers. Our vocation as the people of God is to come to the “unity of the faith and of the knowledge of the Son of God, to maturity, to the measure of the full stature of Christ”. Living into the full stature of Christ is a lifelong journey.
Christian education is an indispensible part of our formation as Christians. St. Paul tells us that we are “transformed by the renewing of our minds” . Christian formation, therefore, is a commitment to a life where we learn from the Living Christ. The Resurrected Rabbi still invites us to sit at His feet. Jesus longs to equip us to live on this earth with His mercy, grace and compassion.
