The class will take a detailed look at the meaning and process of conversion. Heavy emphasis will be given to the Bible Dictionary statement on conversion. Discussions will center on how conversion becomes complete and the process whereby conversion "will change a natural man into a sanctified, born again, purified person-a new creature in Christ Jesus." In addition to the scriptures, statements by modern prophets and apostles will be explored.
