Liberated In Christ: Liberated in Christ is Calvary Church's freedom ministry based on materials by Dr. Neil Anderson of Freedom in Christ, USA. This course will guide participants in the freedom we have in Christ Jesus. The course will help uncover areas in your life where Satan has gained a foothold, perpetuating shame and guilt, long after the sin has been confessed and forgiven. Participants will develop a clearer understanding of who they are... not the roles they live out... but who they are in Christ. They will develop the skill and practice the Steps to Freedom in Christ, which sets them free from spiritual strongholds, areas where Satan has gained an advantage.  Lastly, participants will transform their mind, through the power of God's Word, to live a life of freedom. 

This course replaces the Women’s Restoration groups (Women:Restored, Women:Redeemed, and Women:Revived).  For the next course offering, contact Karen VanHolstyn.
