What is Spiritual Formation?
Simply put, Spiritual Formation (SF) is the process through which people become disciples of Jesus Christ and are made more like him.
Our goal is to equip all Ada Bible Church attenders with the tools to grow in grace and to know our Lord Jesus Christ more fully. Besides, that is the purpose of all our spiritual journeys – to know Jesus and to be transformed into his image (John 17.3;
2 Corinthians 3.18). With that in mind, we are making available a number of ministries and resources to assist you in your journey. Check these out:
“The ‘life of quiet desperation’ that most people have always lived, according to Henry David Thoreau, is at present becoming noticeably more desperate and less quiet” (Dallas Willard, The Great Omission, p.120).
Is this true in your life?
Are you hungry to grow and, too often, seem to come up empty?
We want to help.
We want to help people wholeheartedly say with C.S. Lewis, “I believe in Christianity as I believe that the sun has risen, not only because I see it but because, by it, I see everything else” (The Weight of Glory, “Is Theology Poetry,” 140).
