Spiritual Formation


But now thus says the LORD, he who created you, O Jacob, he who formed you, O Israel. “Fear not, for I have redeemed you; I have called you by name, you are mine.
– Isaiah 43:1 ESV

I have been crucified with Christ. It is no longer I who live, but Christ who lives in me. And the life I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me.
– Galatians 2:20 ESV

“Just as there is an ‘outer you’ that is being formed and shaped all the time, like it or not, by accident or on purpose, so there is an ‘inner you.’ You have a spirit. And it's constantly being shaped and tugged at by what you hear and watch and say and read and think and experience. Everyone is being spiritually formed all the time. Whether they want to or not. Whether they're Christian or not. The question isn't if someone will sign up for spiritual formation; it's just who and what our spirits will be formed by.”
– John Ortberg

At Christ Presbyterian Church, we believe that everyone who trusts in the Lord Jesus for salvation begins a new life in him. The process of spiritual growth that takes place in a Christian’s life has commonly been called discipleship. We have chosen to use the term Spiritual Formation because it better describes what is actually happening: the Spirit of Christ transforms every aspect of our lives ––our hearts, minds, habits, and relationships.

All aspects of ministry at CPC, from weekly worship to smaller group gatherings, are designed with Spiritual Formation as a primary goal. We believe that worship, fellowship, learning and serving together all mold us more and more into the likeness of Jesus.
