Topic: Topical Passage: Ephesians 4:15
One of the core values of SOMA is the following:
Transformation: We will be a community of people seeking spiritual transformation. We recognize that spiritual growth is not optional and therefore we will cooperate with God as He transforms us to be more like Jesus. Our services and programs will be designed with this goal.
As you listen to this message and consider the above value of SOMA, prayerfully allow these verses to shape your understanding of spiritual growth.

- Ephesians 4:11-16

- 1 Corinthians 3:1-3
