When our lives are aligned with God’s truths we begin to walk in freedom, joy, and power.

In this twelve-week journey you’ll learn some simple but dynamic truths that will deepen your relationship with God, replace performance with rest, break off shame, live in the Spirit, choose forgiveness, speak words of life, replace judgments with blessings, and more.

Learning is personalized through daily habits, a workbook, and weekly discussions in small groups. There are also times of worship, a few video teachings, and a conference at the end. The truths we learn in FREEDOM are foundational to Petra Church’s way of life, and we hope this group will be the first one you join here in our community.
