Believing God Women's Study

An in-depth women's Bible study based on Isaiah 43:10 that explores what it means not only "to believe in God" but "to believe Him." The bride of Jesus Christ in our generation is nearly paralyzed by unbelief. God is calling His bride to a fresh and lavish anointing of faith. Through studying the lives of Abraham, Moses, and others as examples of persons who believed God, this study encourages women to deepen their own trust in God and receive a fresh word from Him.

This 10-week study will include a video and teaching followed by a small group discussion.

Next class dates to be announced.

Fresh Start Recovery for Men
