Deepen 201

The purpose of Deepen 201 is to help you know what we teach as a church. It is the second of four areas we use to equip our people for the work of the ministry. Deepen 201 is preceded by Discover 101 and followed by Develop 301 and Deploy 401. We pray this short study will help you understand us better, but love the Gospel more.

Deepen 201 sets forth the foundation for resting in the person of Jesus Christ and the completed work of His cross. This collection of studies seek to rectify the greatest deficiency in the Christian life, the failure to understand all that Christ is for us and all that we are in Him.
