Men, women, and middle and high school students have been radically transformed. The prayers of repentance and the experience of God’s cleansing and forgiveness have broken the grip of sin and have caused hearts to be healed and restored. Thanks be to God — our church and community are forever changed.
Bob Huisman, Pastor, Immanuel Christian Reformed Church, Hudsonville, MI, USA
One of the most satisfying and rewarding things in running the Freedom In Christ Course is the joy of seeing how the life transforming Spirit-led teaching opened the eyes of participants’ hearts to receive the eternal truth of God that sets us free to live the full life in Christ as his disciples. I recommend it highly to anyone serious about discipleship in the church.
Chuah Seong Peng, Senior Pastor, Holy Light Presbyterian Church, Johor Baru, Malaysia
The Freedom In Christ Course changed me and put me in a position to minister to people in a much more effective way. It really changes the way Christians think about themselves. God uses it restore people’s lives and to deliver them from a lot of baggage, strongholds, and religion. The course is now the main part of our discipleship program and is a requirement for members wanting to become part of any ministry as well as for couples planning to get married.
Frikkie Elstadt, Every Nation Patria, Mossel Bay, South Africa
Increasingly, new Christians are carrying huge amounts of spiritual baggage, hurts and strongholds. Traditional discipleship material focusing on growth, gifts, and giving was not getting through. We have seen folk suddenly being propelled forwards at a rate unseen before. This is a very balanced, Biblically-based, well-presented course that God is powerfully using.
Sam Griffiths, Wellington Baptist Church, Somerset, UK
Our church has changed as a result of this course. Those who come to Christ and who do the course end up with a rock solid start to their faith. We have also seen people come to faith through it and get very well established by knowing their true identity.
Pastor Sam Scott, Eltham Baptist Church, Australia
We have a vision for many small groups in our church and throughout our region. The Freedom in Christ Course has proved to be excellent in helping us fulfil that vision. We have been using it for many years and God has used it to start a lot of new groups.
Barnabás Balogh, Baptist Church Pastor, Szeged, Hungary
I stopped teaching and preaching in the church for three months and concentrated totally on the Freedom In Christ Course. It lays a foundation as a wise master builder on which others can build. It is the pure milk of the Word that everyone needs to grow.
Korush Partovi, Pastor, Iranian Church, Isparta, Turkey
We’ve been doing the Freedom in Christ Course for several years. It’s a great tool that can help people to apply the truths of the Word of God to their own lives in a practical way. We have seen great freedom as a result of realizing and applying these principles, destroying strongholds and negative mindsets that had been there for years. I highly recommend it to everyone.
Alessandro Gatti, Pastor, Baptist Church, Casorate Primo, Italy
Our people have been encouraged and motivated to move up a gear. Many shared that they feel somehow “different” and are experiencing a deeper sense of inward freedom. It has brought unity into our church like never before.
Elizabeth Byrne, Hacketstown Christian Centre, Co. Carlow, Ireland
The Freedom in Christ Course helps the individual to understand that most of his problems are rooted in the way he thinks. Then, it provides him with the tools to renounce the unhealthy thought patterns and the lies of the enemy by applying the Word of God, by the help of the Holy Spirit. It results in overcoming weaknesses, breaking bondages, and living in the freedom of Christ.
Gevik Hairapetian, Pastor, Persian Speaking Church, Venlo, Holland
Even after growing up in the church, studying at a Christian college, and finishing a year of seminary, I had never been taught the Scriptural principles I learned through the Freedom In Christ materials. Knowing my identity in Christ and understanding the spiritual battle helped me overcome anger, depression, and addiction through the power of Christ. After 20+ years of full-time pastoral ministry, I can honestly say I wouldn’t have made it this far, or helped as many people, without the message and ministry of FICM.
Dan Studt, Pastor, Praxis Church, Syracuse, NY, USA
As a pastor, I have read many resources on freedom and discipleship. The Freedom In Christ resource is well written and relevant to every church, no matter what denomination. It really helps church members to know their true identity in Christ and reclaim their freedom in Him.
Revd Abel A. Akinbode, Zion Baptist Church, Oketunji Area, Osogbo, Osun State, Nigeria.
It has given us the tools for spiritual growth and imparts a sense of personal responsibility in being a disciple of Jesus.
Helcio & Angela Lange da Silva, Evangelical Church, Mondim de Basto, Portugal
Freedom In Christ is a discipleship course that helps bring to light your identity in Christ, challenges you to tap into the power of God within you, and leads you to a life full of victories.
Steve Silberman, Director, Alternative Missions, Cofradia de Cuyutlan, Nayarit, Mexico.
We are seeing lives changed by the foundational truths of who we are in Christ. I am thrilled to see people being set free and finding release from the things that have kept them in bondage! As a pastor, I highly recommend this ministry and its resources.
Darryl L. Craft, D.Min., Senior Pastor, Temple Baptist Church, Hattiesburg, MS, USA
Praise the Lord for this course! The strong Biblical teaching and truth about our identity in Christ is life-transforming. We have seen blessing with the youth and with the church and plan on using it each year. Simple as it may be, The Steps weekend always seem to bring release and change.
Colin Stephen, Resurrection and Life Evangelical Church, Shkoder, Albania
The Freedom in Christ Discipleship Course helped us evaluate what we really believe and we now understand our Christian life and purpose much better. As a result we can talk about our faith with much more power and freedom.
András Bencze, Lutheran Church Pastor, Székesfehérvár, Hungary
We consider the Freedom In Christ Course to be the best material on the market to build Christians up in their walk with Jesus. It encourages personal responsibility and helps people to go deeper with God and discover His blessings. The impact on our church and community has been enormous.
Adrian Pike, Beacon Church, Camberley, UK
As a pastor I thought a great deal about how to disciple our believers in a practical way. The Freedom In Christ Course is an answer to my prayers.
Pastor Tekilu, Bishooftu, Ethiopia
