ABOUT FAITH FORMATION
Faith Formation is a new term for the modern church but few understand what it really means.
When many hear the term "Faith Formation" or "Christian Formation," they often think of classes they must attend to become a member of a Christian denomination. If it were only that narrow, it would be called Christian education – but it is much more than that.
Yes, learning the history of the faith and understanding the fundaments of the Christian tradition are important elements, but Christian formation is also about acquiring a Christian discipline for one’s life to guide one in the practice of the faith every day. For it is only in the “living out” of the Christian faith that one can discover the many ways it adds richness and meaning to one’s life even as it helps one develop a closer connection to God in Jesus Christ.
You are welcome to examine all the pages under Faith Formation because they offer important elements of strengthening one's journey in Faith Formation.
