Series: Freedom in Christ

As a Christian, you are called to live with freedom in Christ. In fact, freedom is a theme that runs through the Bible like a vivid, golden thread. It is clear that this freedom comes through faithfully following Christ. 

In Christ, you are set free. But what does that mean? How do you live as a free person? This 21-day series takes you through Old and New Testament passages encouraging and guiding you to live with freedom in Christ.
