In Galatians 2:20, Paul said, “It is not I who lives, but Christ lives in me.” This is one of the most amazing truths in all the Bible, yet the question I’ve been exploring every since I’ve been a young believer is, “Christ lives in me. But how do I live by His life?”
I believe there is an answer to this question. While I’m no expert on this subject (and I don’t believe there are any experts), over the last 30 years, I have sought an answer to this question. And by God’s grace, I’ve discovered some life-changing insights on the journey — a journey that I’m still on.
For the first time, I’m presenting those discoveries to a wider audience. And my hope is that you will benefit from them as much as I have.
As C.S. Lewis once wrote, “Christianity seems at first to be about morality, rules, guilt, and virtue, yet it leads you out of that, into something beyond.”
The “beyond” is Jesus Christ Himself and His indwelling life. It is the difference between living by the Tree of Life vs. the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil.
That’s what this course is all about. The Introduction to the course – Epic Jesus – and the first session are FREE. They appear below under Sample the Course.
Are You Frustrated Trying to Live the Christian Life?
Many Christians know from experience how frustrating it can be trying to live the Christian life. In fact, it’s humanly impossible to live such a life. The secret to living the Christian life can be juiced down to one statement: Not I but Christ.
What are the practical handles that enable us to live by Christ? What is the switch that allows Him to live His life through us?
Living by the Indwelling Life of Christ – is a 10 session audio program by Frank Viola Author.
It also includes a 40 page digital workbook and a bonus eBook.

A Premium Course for a Low Fee
Those of you who know Frank’s work are aware that he loves to give away valuable resources. For example:
* You can access his over 95 audio messages for free.
* You can read his over 800 articles for free.
* You can get his book Rethinking the Will of God (Revised) for free.
* You can get his Next Reformation Seminar for free.
Frank’s new course is not free, however. There is a one-time charge because it required money and many hours of labor over several years to create. Yet the price for the course is far lower than any other online course of the same quality — including online seminary courses.
Most online seminary courses range from $300 to $600 per semester hour.
Obviously, there is no accreditation with this course. However, many of our over 1,000 students who have taken the course have said the material is more valuable than what they learned in seminary.
Living by the Indwelling Life of Christ is only $127 for the complete online course. This is a one-time payment and you have access to the course at all times.
This price includes the following:
* The 10 audio messages containing almost 9 hours of in-depth teaching. (All the messages are digital and you can access them immediately.)
* The 40 page workbook containing text, supplemental resources, and action plans. (The workbook is also digital.)
* A special access page to interact with Frank about the content once you finish the course.
* Frank’s digital eBook When the Pages Are Blank: How to Bring the Bible Back to Life.
* A 15% discount on the next course that we plan to release in 2015 on a different subject.
* You have access to the entire course at all times and can work through it at your own pace.
Sample the Course – Two Free Sessions
* Listen to the first message of the course for free.
* Listen to the Introduction to the course for free. It’s called Epic Jesus: The Christ You Never Knew. This course makes this conference message practical.
Special License for Local Churches
If you are a pastor of a local church or you’re part of a local organic church or local Bible study, and your local group would like to go through the course together, we have a special Church License option where everyone in your local group can get access to the entire course without having to absorb the cost of flying someone out to speak to your group.
Each member of your group can do the course at their own pace, if they like.
The Church License is $527. If your church has 20 adults, that’s less than $27 per person. Again, this is far less expensive than flying Frank or someone else out to speak to your group in person.
IMPORTANT: The Church License is only for local churches and local study groups, which means, the people with whom you gather regularly face-to-face in your local area. “Online churches” and “online Bible study groups” do not count for this option.
If you have an “online group,” each person must register separately and get their own course.
(This course does not replace the role of in-person on-site ministry. It rather serves as a supplement to it.
If your church or group desires someone to come and minister in person – including the planting of a church – send an email to PTMIN@aol.com.)
Registration for the online edition is currently closed. It will reopen in November.
The Home Edition (the physical course) will release in August.
