what are freedom groups?

Freedom groups at Vertical Church are an in-depth look at our identity as Christ followers. Wherever we are in our relationship with God, there is more freedom for us here on earth beyond salvation! For each of us, our identity should be secure as God’s sons and daughters, but there are things that keep us from truly understanding and experiencing this. 

In our Freedom Groups, we look at our past and present through self-awareness to see if there are things holding us back from the future that God has prepared for us. Freedom Groups are not just about knowledge acquisition, but taking the knowledge we acquire and allowing our lives to be transformed through the love of the Father, the power of Jesus and the guidance of the Holy Spirit. The goal is to learn and experience how we can fight off Satan’s attempts to entangle us in sin and instead embrace our identity as sons and daughters of God who are growing in an intimate relationship with Him as Father! Throughout Freedom, you will learn tools in an applicable and practical way that will equip you to continue in an ongoing relationship with God.

There is privacy and confidentiality and you will find a safe place to be real and walk with others on their journey as well. Our Freedom groups may be held in a home or in a room at our location, but everyone will have a Group leader. Some may be held as co-ed groups at the beginning, but everyone will break down into men and women groups for small group time. In other words, guys with guys and girls with girls.

We hope you’ll make the commitment to join and walk in freedom because we believe that we move forward in freedom!
