Spiritual Formation

Spiritual formation is the process of being transformed by the love of God into the image of Christ in intention, thinking and behavior, becoming a tangible representation of God’s love in the world. A good simple definition from Robert Mulholland is, “Spiritual formation is a process of being conformed to the image of Christ for the sake of others.”  

Biblical references: 2 Cor 5: 14-18; Gal 2:20; 4:19-26; Eph 4:13, 20-24; Col 3:3, 9-10
