Spiritual Formation

THE TELOS OF CHRISTIAN SPIRITUAL FORMATION AND ITS FORMATIVE STRANDS

Christian spiritual formation fulfils God’s creative design and redemptive purposes. Therefore, the goals of Christian spiritual formation are as follows:

Individual believers’ acquiring a Christ-like character,
Development of a people of God,
Establishment of the kingdom of God and the healing of the whole of creation.

Intrinsic to Christian spiritual formation, therefore, are three formative strands that will achieve the desired goals:

Person-in-formation,
Persons-in-community formation,
Persons-in-mission formation.
