Year 1, Training 1

Gospel & Personal

The foundation of the good news is Jesus crucified. The word that describes this idea is Cruciformity: we have a cross shaped gospel. Cruciformity must be the foundation of everything we say or do, and even how we come into a place. Cross-shaped lives must be what the church is built upon. In T1 we are going to engage with materials and dialogue together about what this means theologically and practically. We’ll discuss what it looks like to lay this cross-shaped foundation in our lives, so that later, God might lay a cross-shaped foundation to our church.
