Paul writes to the Church of Rome:  "Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that by testing you may discern what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect." -Romans 12:2

Transformed centers on the life, ministry, and teachings of the Apostle Paul.  If anyone knows what its like to be transformed by God, it was Paul.  He goes from a persecutor of the church as one of the highest ranking Pharisees, to meeting Jesus on the Damascus road, to living the entirety of his life to make the Gospel known to all, especially the Gentiles.  The students who attend Transformation Conference this year they will see and experience what it means to live transformed for the glory of Jesus Christ!

Session 1:


What does it mean to be justified before a Holy God?  What does it mean to receive the righteousness of Christ?  How might an encounter with Jesus change everything in one's life?  In session 1, Will will walk through the Acts 9 narrative of the Damascus road and the experience Saul has that leads him towards total transformation by means of the Gospel.

Session 2:


A Christian's journey doesn't conclude at salvation, rather, it begins.  Jesus Christ has freed us from the penalty of sin by his own blood (Eph. 1:7) but this doesn't mean that fleshly nature still remains.  As Christians, we are wage war against the flesh and pursue Christ-likeness at whatever cost to our own personal comfort and desires.  In this session, we will see what it means to be sanctified - made more like Christ.  Will will show us in Philippians 3:12-14 how to press onward towards the upward call of Christ and how believers can practically take hold of this.

Session 3:


How does God call us to live in light of eternity?  With angst and expectation believers await glory.  The finish line for the believer is to be told "Well done, my good and faithful servant."  In the final session, we will see how God has called us to live in light of eternity.  We will see that eternity means the absence of sin in the presence of our Savior forever for those who have trusted in his finished work on the cross.  Session 3 will highlight the commission of believers to live with the end in mind, displaying urgency for their own holiness and for those who don't know Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior.
