MetadataShow full item record
This project was designed to equip members of First Baptist Church in Leadville, Colorado to understand and practice biblical sanctification. Chapter 1 presents the ministry context of FBCL, as well as the rationale, purpose, goals, research methodologies, definitions, and delimitations for this project. Chapter 2 provides the biblical basis for sanctification with an exegesis of the following foundational passages: Ephesians 1:3-14, Colossians 2:6-10, and Romans 8:5-17. These passages compel the reader to find a biblical foundation for sanctification in a secure spiritual identity, a commitment to consistent spiritual growth, and a call to a continual spiritual battle. Chapter 3 continues the discussion into the theological realm and argues for a theological model that promotes consistent spiritual growth. Chapter 4 details the process of the project itself. Chapter 5 conclusively evaluates the efficiency of the project. Ultimately, this project seeks to glorify God by equipping saints to understand and practice biblical sanctification in order to enjoy unified fellowship, cohesive worship, fruitful growth, and effective evangelism.
