Christian formation is the Spirit's work of forming us into the person of Jesus Christ. As Christ is formed in us we are empowered to live missional lives characterized by "love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, generosity, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control" (Gal 6: 22-23).

Living into the full stature of Christ is a lifelong journey.
