It was so empowering just to know power accumulation in those days led to major corruption. The things people were doing in private were now done publicly eg murder, sex and people became greedy. People rejected the way of Christ. Forgiveness was based on contributions people made in church. Salvation is by faith in Christ alone. What a great awakening in the 1730 when the God’s spirit began. Wesley saw the need for methodical process for people to grow in faith. Massive expansion of missinary activities realised in the 19th century.

I enjoyed hearing the commentary on the History – how the mission of God has been out working throughout His timeline. To also consider what that looks like for HIs people in this post Covid 19 world. Being positioned to have a listening ear that allows Holy Spirit to renew our minds, strengthen and prepare us to receive His blueprint and strategy that will direct our steps for the new era we have entered into. A faithful witness with a heart always positioned to learn from His perspective. Yielded and surrendered to Holy Spirit – being willing to move as He moves, truly in sinc and as one with Him.

The Axx Platform has been super simple to navigate, use and enjoy. The interface is intuitive and functions seamlessly.
The content was well delivered and very informative.

Great practical subjects

This is the first Christian study course I have completed. I loved the practical subjects. I struggled with the theology subjects due to my prior Bible knowledge. I have learnt more about Christianity but I feel like course requires more time than the estimated three hours a week to get the most out of this course.
