First Freedoms

Wednesdays, January 12-April 13
9:00-11:00 AM, Room 227
Led by Emily Linge

Christians begin their first steps in Christ at the moment of conversion. From that moment on, they have access to freedoms that weren’t possible prior. But every disciple must understand those freedoms and learn how to walk in them, which requires practice. 

In First Freedoms, Jennifer Barnett unpacks many “first freedoms” that Christians own but often don’t fully integrate into their relationship with God. First freedoms are fundamental tools in prayer that encourage a close, sincere, and ongoing relationship with God. Jennifer explains how to foster freedoms such as cultivating a powerful prayer life, abiding fully in God’s presence, healing emotional scars, battling the schemes of the enemy, and many others. 

The goal? Drawing near to God through prayer to enable you to guard your heart with all diligence and grow in intimacy with him. Such wonderful freedoms were never available before putting your faith in Christ. But in Christ you can experience them. Cultivate a wholehearted prayer life and experience the joy and peace that come from walking freely in a meaningful relationship with God. Take your next steps toward God with First Freedoms. 

Study participants will need to purchase their own copy of First Freedoms: Drawing Near to God by Cultivating a Wholehearted Prayer Life by Jennifer Barnett.  Books are only available online at
