A muture Christian is one who is preparing for Heaven where they will live with Christ. While we can’t be perfect, we can root out as much sin as possible in our lives. We do this by harnessing the power of the Holy Spirit in our lives and not placing ourselves in places where we are tempted to do evil. This process is called Sanctification.

I verify before God and before the witness (Discipleship Mentor) that I have listened to the sermons, read the Bible verses, answered the questions, and completed the tasks as assigned. I am committed to the process of sanctification and I continue working on it till I die or until Jesus comes back. I understand the Holy Spirit’s role in my life and embrace it. I am also aware of the temptations in my life and am willing to take drastic steps to avoid them.
I verify before God, that I held accountable to learning about the process of the Holy Spirit, sanctification and temptation. I have witnessed this disciples desire to rid sin from his/her life and put barriers in front of temptation. This disciple is walking the Holy Spirit and ready to move on.
