In order to join SFC, you have to go through a seminar that is called the Christian Life Program (CLP). The CLP is an integrated course intended to lead the program participants into a renewed understanding of God’s call. It runs for a total of 12 separate sessions. Most sessions consist of three basic ingredients: a teaching, a group discussion, and a time for fellowship.
The CLP has two basic purposes: evangelism and spiritual renewal.
To evangelize is to take the basic message of Christianity and to proclaim it anew so that those who hear it can make a renewed commitment to the Lord in a way which will allow them to receive a fuller experience of the work of the Holy Spirit in their lives.
Spiritual renewal works in three ways:
- For the individual: to bring a person into a stronger relationship with God by discovering and living more fully the power and gifts he or she received through the Holy Spirit.
- For the family: to bring people to a renewed commitment to Christian family life, thereby building up a community of committed Christian families.
- For the Church: to bring people within a particular parish to a fuller experience of life in the Spirit, thereby strengthening and revitalizing community life in the parish.
