New Vine: Godly Character
in the "Real World"
The New Vine Fellowship program brings
God's word to practical, day to day living. It
does so in ways that build our character to face the trials of life, and help
us in breaking our bondage to sin through Jesus Christ.
In short, it brings... Freedom...
...through a Bible based study of what the master of life, God
Himself, has to tell us about how to live.
Imagine buying a car, and finding it filled with buttons
and levers, all with neat little pictures on them. For all your pressing and peering, you find
some functions just don't make sense. So what do you do?
Simple. You reach in the glove compartment and pull out the "owners
manual". But sadly, we weren't born with a glove compartment
or owners manual, so what to do?
God, of course, has an answer. The Bible is many things -- one of which
is that it is masterfully written by the Author of life itself to show us who
we are both as a people, and as individuals. Knowing and understanding
both who we are, and how God wants us to live, gives us incredible tools
for successful day to day living.
Although developed primarily for use in addiction treatment, the program
has proven to be of use for people in churches, prisons, and addiction
It is unique in its focus on building Godly character, and not on an
individuals past behavior. This allows simultaneous benefit to those with personal
concerns as diverse as sex addiction, alcoholism, drug abuse, or simply struggling
in jobs or relationships. In New Vine, one need not talk about the specifics
of ones "stuff" to reap the benefits.
