What does it mean to be a backsliding Christian and what do you do about it if you are backsliding?
We look at the spiritual growth process in comparison to physical maturity to identify if we are spiritual adults, teens, or babies.
We will unpack the differences between the spiritual gifts and the manifestation of the Spirit, and recall the importance of unity in a church with diverse gifts.
