Going One on One: Gaining by Losing
Our focus at Central Christian Church is to Love God/Love Mankind. Jesus told us that the focus of our faith should be to love God will all of our being and to love mankind in the same we we long to be loved. Jesus came and showed us exactly what that focus looks like by the way He lived His life. Each week we will be looking at how to shape our lives to be all that Jesus called us to be.
Living a life of faith is never focused on us, but on God and others. That means we live a life of going out to the people around us. Faith is about going. Come, worship and listen and see what new excitement awaits you in your faith journey.

Vital Signs: How to Monitor Your Spiritual Health turns to the passage in John’s gospel in which Jesus prays to His Father, asking that His followers know unity with one another in their love for God. Author Harley Ihm finds in this prayer for unity the inspiration for uncovering five vital signs that indicate one’s spiritual health. He describes the signs that point to the spiritual vitality of one’s heart, vision, mind, body, and community.
Vital Signs devotes a chapter to each of these five signs of spiritual vitality, drawing upon key biblical passages, theological insights from the traditions of the church, and reflective observations rooted in contemporary events. Accompanying the discussion of the five vital signs are eleven steps for creating a plan for spiritual health. These supplementary guides are suitable for either individual or group use. They take the book’s insights as the starting points for developing plans to enable one to work out an approach for cultivating and maintaining spiritual health.
No matter where you find yourself in your spiritual journey, Vital Signs: How to Monitor Your Spiritual Health can provide you with a refreshing look at the hope and promise of true health that flows from Jesus’s prayer and desires for His people. By taking stock of your vital signs, you can understand more clearly your current spiritual health and then make and carry out a plan for improving your spiritual fitness.
