What is spiritual formation?
A simple definition: the ongoing work of the Holy Spirit and the various methods He uses to bring about spiritual growth in our lives.

You could also say it this way:

Spiritual formation is the process of lifelong transformation as a result of our deepening relationship with God. As we abide in Him, He restores us back to His image, shaping us into the likeness of Jesus Christ, through the work of the Holy Spirit, in the community of faith, for the sake of the world.

Biblically speaking, where does the term “spiritual formation” come from?
And we, who with unveiled faces all reflect the Lord’s glory, are being transformed into his likeness with ever-increasing glory. 2 Corinthians 3:18

My dear children, for whom I am again in the pains of childbirth until Christ is formed in you. Galatians 4:19

Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Romans 12:2

What does spiritual formation look like at Salem Alliance?
Everything we do here is about being spiritually formed to His likeness. There are countless ways to spiritually grow, including the many groups that we offer. In addition, it is my hope to offer tools and resources for nurturing the intimate relationship with God that has been offered to us through the Holy Spirit.
