Spiritual maturity is typically graded on a curve. If you're in a church and everybody is very immature and you're just a "little" immature don't you feel good about yourself? You say, "I'm ahead of those guys." The apostle Paul said, "those that compare themselves with themselves or others are foolish."

There's a danger in "grading on the curve".

Watch the video to see why.

Church attendance doesn't thrill God. A transformed heart is what Thrills God!

Watch this video that discusses how many believers are living behavior before other people, NOT before God.

Many believers don't know where they are spiritually. Why?

New believers are not being spiritually mentored right at the beginning of their Christian life and they don't know what they are supposed to be doing.

If God has a purpose for every Christian why are so many living in the "Spiritual Desert"?

Watch the Video for a solution.

5 Biblical Concepts
Every Believer
Needs To Know

1. As my Savior – Jesus wants me to know that all my sins have been forgiven, and I now have eternal life.

2. As my Lord – Jesus wants me to know that I have been bought with a price, and I am no longer my own.

3. I am very special and God has a marvelous, unique design for my entire life, and He wants to manage His plan for me.

4. God wants me to know that the Holy Spirit alone is capable of guiding me and revealing God’s plan to me.

5. God wants me to know that the Holy Spirit will train me to recognize, follow and obey His guidance.
