Jail & Prison Ministry
- 5 Facets in Spiritual Formation Every person, at some point in life, must decide whether or not to receive Jesus Christ as his or her personal Lord and Savior. But that is just the starting point of a lifelong journey in discipleship as a follower of Jesus. As the apostle Paul says, we are to grow mature in Christ. We grow up into the head of the Body, who is Christ (Eph. 4:15). Such "growing up" is the process of spiritual formation.
- Answering the Call is a curriculum to equip Christians behind the walls to live focused lives of witness and discipleship. These Christians are the best to reach their community. Trainer Certification is now available through the Institute for Prison Ministries at www.prisoninstitute.com
This booklet is written to help new Christians take some first steps during their first week as a new believer. Week One: Taking Your First Steps as a Follower of Jesus Christ. The booklet was designed so those in your church could give it to people making a decision for Christ with encouragement to "start today." It includes a coaching process so that disciplers can discuss questions with a more mature believer. Ideally, new believers who use this resource will move immediately into a connection with a Bible study group and continue growing as disciples.
