7 Habits

7 Habits of a Christ-Driven Life

Most Americans today consider themselves to be Christians. But, the reality is, there are many different definitions of what a Christian might look like.

As we study the Bible, it becomes clear that there are seven basic habits of people who consider themselves to be "Christians." This is not a complete list. But if a person does demonstrate these habits, it's pretty close.

Obviously God works from the inside-out. Life transformation starts from the inside and then works itself out. These habits are the outward evidences of what is happening on the inside.

At ThornCreek, we look at these habits as indications of a person's spiritual walk with God.
