Words To Live By
by Andy George
As believers we need to be intentional about growing spiritually. It simply doesn't happen on its own. We have to desire to grow, and then put it into practice.
A farmer doesn't put a seed in the ground and think his work is done—instead he provides daily care and nurture to produce the fruit of his labor. Likewise God is ready to grow us into spiritual maturity as we spend daily time with Him.
Spiritual growth isn't based on how much we pray, how much we learn, or even how many good things we do. Rather our growth is measured by how much we are conformed to the image of Christ.
Below is a range of growth resources available to you at Crossroads Fellowship to help you on your journey.
Words To Live By
Your thoughts can hold you back, push you down, and feed you lies, but they can also lift you up! Is it time for you to change the way you are thinking? In this Words to Live By book (based on a sermon series of the same name), we look at how our thoughts affect our outlook. We examine words and concepts from the Word of God that can shape our lives and align us with His purposes. My prayer is that this book will help equip you to be an effective follower of Jesus and that you will see God work in your life in amazing ways!

Go! Training Manual
Let us invite you into a closer, more intimate walk with Jesus. This material is designed to facilitate an experience and create a renewal. There will be familiar practices described and encouraged in this material (the ways of Jesus). But there will also be a fresh perspective with an understanding that there are no cookie-cutter people and that there are many ways people grow in their relationship with the Lord.
Ultimately spiritual growth comes only from the Spirit of God, period. It is our prayer that God’s Spirit gives us all a great ride!
Oneness Embraced Resources
"Life to the Full" Series
When we invite Jesus Christ to be the center of our lives as our Savior, He immediately begins to transform us into His image from the inside out. As we cooperate with Him in the major areas of our lives—spiritually, intellectually, emotionally, relationally, physically, professionally, and financially—we grow and conform more and more to the image of Jesus Christ.
If there are areas of your life that need to be better aligned with God's desire for you, simply choose that area below for a Scripture-based course designed and taught by Pastor Emeritus Chuck Milian. Each course of study has four modules, beginning with the most basic level (100) and then becoming more advanced as you go (up to 400). Each module has individual lessons that are 5-8 minutes in length. You can do a self study at your own pace or participate in a group study. 128 lessons in all!
