* 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.

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 hard to maintain God's acceptance by working hard and 'doing the right things'. This course is designed to help Christians to understand what it means to be God's child, to help them receive the assurance of what makes them acceptable to God, to point out the things that don't affect their acceptance and to encourage them to deal with any hindrances that may be stopping them from walking in the fullness of God's grace every day. The intention is that they will then be free to glorify God in their behaviour, not because they feel they have to but because they want to.
