The Power of Spiritual Growth and Development - Spiritual growth and development is the process of changing one's self-concept, personality and spiritual identity in order to achieve a more developed sense of self. It is a journey that each individual takes that leads to a greater understanding of who they are as well as what their purpose in life is. Spiritual growth is important in daily life. It is a journey that everyone takes at some point in their life. The goal of this journey is to become a better person, and to find the meaning of life. Join us and develop a deeper understanding of scripture and what God have in store for a better life for tomorrow, today.
