Faith

The faith community is a vital component in our day-to-day lives. The motivation to study character from God's perspective will give us strength in dealing with daily struggles and encourage us to good deeds motivated by love for others. The Character Council of Indiana hopes to assist individuals and leaders in modeling godly character as an example to a needy world.

Studying character from God's perspective reveals the true deficiencies of the natural man and points to the Source of lasting results. Strengthening the spiritual inner man produces the power to maintain godly character.

Throughout the writings of the Apostle Peter, we can find an emphasis on godly character. In one section, Peter listed nine foundational character qualities and demonstrated how they build on each other. Demonstrating these qualities are key to a fruitful life.
