As we enter the New Year, we need to take stock of the most important — essential — parts of our lives. Join us as we review the essentials with a new guide to rating ourselves and understanding how we should respond to the results.

Thrive Study Guide

The Essentials

January 8, 2012Randy Christian

Spiritual growth is simple. There are things God has created us to have in our lives, and if we do, we grow. Simple. So why don’t we? Perhaps it is because we don’t understand that those things aren’t just “church things”—that they are related to our marriage and family life, our relationships with co-workers and success in our work, our emotions and how we handle them. No one who practices the essentials fails to grow—and no one who fails to practice them grows.


“Bible Study”
October 26, 2008

“Study” is a word many of us don’t like! Most Christians claim to believe that the Bible is the Word of God. Yet many of us are content to let others tell us what it says. We agree or disagree according to our own thoughts—but too often without actually searching the scriptures to see if what we are told us true. Is Bible Study really something each of us can—and should—do? Join us as we look to the Word to learn about looking to the Word!
