Course Description

Colossians teaches principles for living a Christian life in the midst of a non-Christian culture. Sometimes this requires us to go against the tide of public opinion or popular trends. When we love someone we want to please him or her. If we love God, we want to please Him in all we do. However, we have not made our own efforts to have a right relationship with God. Jesus Christ is the only human being who has a perfect relationship with the Father and the Spirit. In this course, learners will understand this perfect relationship with God.
