The Grace Course is a straightforward, effective way for churches to help Christians understand God's grace and be motivated by God's love alone, so that they go on to bear "much fruit". It provides powerful, practical ways to submit to God, identify faulty thinking and renew the mind.
* Live a fruitful Christian life simply by being the person God made you to be.
* Don't "perform" any longer for God or other people but learn to serve out of love.
* Hold your head up high no matter what's in your past.
* Get rid of condemning thoughts and that "low grade fever" of guilt.
* Stop returning to the same old sins again and again.
* Fear nothing and no one except God Himself.
* Learn to serve out of genuine rest.
* Work together with others to reach the world for Christ.

The Grace Course Participant's Guide is designed to accompany the user through the course.
Many Christians have a good understanding that salvation is by grace through faith, and that there is nothing they can do to earn their salvation.
However, many have fallen into the trap that once saved, they must try to maintain God's acceptance by working hard and doing the right things. They focus so much on how well they are behaving as children of God that they miss experiencing life in the reality of God'sgrace. In the end they become stressed out, burned out, or fed up with trying to act like they think Christians should act but never quite managing it. Tragically they usually come to believe that they will never be "good enough."
