Jesus said:  “The words I have spoken to you—they are full of the Spirit and life.”  This quarter sharpen your appetite and appreciation for the Living Word of God along with other passionate believers from area churches so we can make a difference in our region!
 
Our identity in Christ is built on the eternal foundation of the Word of God.  We will dive deep into seven powerful promises of Jesus to make them come more alive in our lives.  We’ll read both Jesus’ own words and related scriptures that illustrate and expand on His promises.  Every class includes creative activations to help you trust and walk in that week’s promise.  We’ll also journal our understanding and experiences of each promise to share in small groups and be encouraged weekly.  In place of journaling, you may also share art, such as music, poetry or creative projects that reflect your understanding of a promise.
 
Time Commitment:  3-4 hours per week, including 2 hours in class, plus approx. 1 hour of reading outside class.  Optional supplemental audio/video teachings are also provided each quarter.
 
Required Reading: A list of selected Bible passages will be provided for you to read, journal and share your understanding in weekly Ignite Small Groups.  Reading assignments begin the week prior to the first class and will be supplied after you sign up for the quarter.

Mission

Unlock your gifts. Discover your identity. Change the world! 
 

Supernatural Ministry

Every believer’s inheritance is to carry the presence of God and see people transformed by the power of His love working through us. This happens as we move from simply believing in Jesus to believing like Jesus, and as we are transformed by the renewing of how we think, see, and experience life (Romans 12:2, John 6:29). Ultimately, Jesus changed the world through the supernatural power of his connection to the Father. The more we learn to embrace the loving presence of God and parti­ci­pate in His divine nature (2 Peter 1:4), the more we see the world around us change!

 

Class Environment

Finger Lakes Ignite classes are a safe place to step out in faith, take risks, grow and experience God in new ways! Every quarter begins with a launching conference with a regional or international guest speaker where we get to dive into the quarter’s theme to kick off classes. From there we grow weekly through live worship, hands on faith activation, powerful teaching and discovery times in small groups. Join a regional outreach and a worship and prayer day each quarter as our city burns for Jesus! 

Hands on faith activations cover areas such as hearing God’s voice, discovering your destiny, operating in the gifts of the Spirit, creative expression and prophetic evangelism. 

 

Transformation

Students are transformed into walking in a Spirit-led lifestyle based on deeper understanding of their identity in Christ, destiny, greater confidence in their faith, and direct experience in exercising the gifts of the Spirit in all kinds of settings. In this context, evangelism and acts of service become an innate and continual witness to Christ’s supernatural victory on the Cross wherever we go. Our sphere of influence may be our home, school, the marketplace or any realm of secular culture in which we are called to engage.

One of the major functions of miracles and victorious living is to offer immediate, irrefutable proof of what God wants to happen on earth. It demonstrates who God is by showing what His reality looks like. The apostle Paul put it this way:

And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God (Romans 12:2, emphasis added).

“It is unnatural for a Christian not to have an appetite for the impossible.”
– Bill Johnson, The Supernatural Power of a Transformed Mind
