The Battle for Society: As Christians live out their lives as spouses, parents, children, as well as employers and employees, they are involved in a great battle for the society in which they live. The apostle Paul identifies these important issues as intricate parts of our spiritual warfare. Join in the battle by living for Christ.
Reflecting Christ's Relationship with the Church: A Christian marriage is intended to reflect Christ's relationship to the Church. It is a bit of God's manifestation of himself on the earth. How should our marriages look in order to accomplish this? This study will focus on key truths to help us grow in our ability to reflect Jesus to the world.
Growing in Kingdom Wisdom: We must recognize the times in which we live. If we do not, we will not understand the important role we have been called to play revealing Christ's light. This study emphasizes the vital role God's people must play, and how to walk in his wisdom as we fill that role.
Imitating God: The apostle Paul presents a clear contrast between living as dear children of God, or living under the consequences of the fall. Christians have a clear choice; live like those who do not know God, or live above, and experience the Kingdom.

They are a new part of creation, and as a result, need to understand what it means to be built into God's temple.
Becoming God's Poem: We are God's craftsmanship, his poem, as the Greek language suggests. He has engineered our salvation so that we are no longer angry people, but people who have purpose and destiny.
