Breaking Free 101 thru The Steps to Freedom in Christ
Teacher: Rev. Bill Jones
A biblical process to resolve personal & spiritual conflicts, becoming a fruitful disciple of Jesus.
“It is impossible to live in a fallen world and not have your heart wounded.” All Christians struggle with emotional and spiritual baggage. Issues from our past can produce bondage in our present life. Breaking Free 101 is a holistic, biblically-balanced, group approach to dealing with that baggage. The Steps to Freedom in Christ looks at the influence of the spiritual realm upon the natural realm.
We believe lies that we aren’t even aware of. We can replace these lies with God’s truth and experience freedom from the spiritual chains that bind us. These sessions are designed to bring recovery from our broken & wounded heart, growth in emotional maturity, and a reawakening of the intimacy of a real joy bond with God and others. We’ll rely on the leading of the Holy Spirit to expose lies we’ve believed and reveal the truth that sets us free. It is important for ALL of God’s people to be freed as disciples of Jesus.
“Is the focus of the series on demons?” The focus is on Christ and freedom through His truth. We will talk about demons and the lies of the devil, because that is part of the real world in which we live. As believers, we need to understand and know how to personally deal with deception and demons. However, we will not be “casting demons” out of those who are present.
What you need to know about Breaking Free 101:
- Attend with a trusted friend — a “prayer partner” with whom you can be open, honest and vulnerable. This can be your spouse or someone of the same gender.
- Attendees should desire God’s work of freedom in their lives, willing to process what God reveals to them.
- The first hour is a teaching time, covering the biblical basis for each session. A handout containing the scriptures & notes will be provided.
- The second hour is a processing & prayer time. Prayer partners will pray in a confidential setting, asking God various questions and listening to His responses. Then processing through prayer what God has revealed.
- An initial commitment to the first two sessions is required Friday night, July 16 and Saturday morning, July 17.
Register by July 11: Register at the Sanctuary Lanai on Sundays. This entire series is a free gift to you, KUC’s investment in your spiritual freedom! Following session #2 attendees will decide if they can commit to all of the remaining sessions. At session #3, you will receive a copy of The Steps to Freedom in Christ booklet.
“Do I need to commit to the entire series?” If you choose to continue after the first two sessions, it is important that you are present for the entire series for the following reasons: 1. Your prayer partner will be depending on you to be there to process with him/her. 2. Each of the sessions will build on the previous content. 3. Every step is important! Missing a session might be the critical one you need to find lasting freedom.
95% of Breaking Free 101 participants indicated that they found freedom in at least one area of their lives — achieving inner emotional healing, freedom from spiritual baggage, and a more intimate relationship with the Lord.
Bill Jones is from Mishawaka, Indiana. He and his wife, Debbie, who formerly served in France are now Missionaries in Residence at Bethel University.
