Spiritual Resources

We all need to understand that the details of our spirituality are clearly stated in God’s Word. The urgency to nurture our spiritual lives is obvious from the experiences of our forefathers as well as contemporary believers in God. The two spiritual principles—being forgiven, the atoning blood sacrifice of Christ for all who believe (John 3:16); and the constant need to put our selfish human nature down, keeping Jesus Christ on the throne of our hearts and minds (1 Corinthians 2:12). These principles are also outlined in the “Plan To Be Spiritual” booklet.

One writer, Dr. James Allan Francis, accurately described Christ’s influence throughout history: “Nineteen wide centuries have come and gone and today He is the centerpiece of the human race and the leader of the column of progress. I am far within the mark when I say that all the armies that ever marched and all the navies that ever were built, and all of the parliaments that ever have sat, and all the kings that ever reigned put together have not affected the life of man upon this earth as powerfully as has that one solitary life, Jesus of Nazareth.”
