Forgiving Challenge

Discover what real freedom is like as we explore the powerful forgiveness that Jesus offers to each and every person, including you!

Be Forgiven. Be Free.

Live with Grace.

Experience Fulfillment in Jesus

The 40-day Forgiving Challenge for small group bible study.

A Forgiven Person is a Forgiving Person

Forgiving Challenge takes you on a life-changing journey to experience the gift of God’s grace so that you can share it with others. The forgiveness that Jesus has already won for you assures you of eternal life with Him. It also offers you an opportunity to live with purpose today. So come. Be forgiven. Be free. And watch how God works through you to change the world.

Forgiving Challenge is for Every Ministry

Discover God’s grace in a new way through challenges that are practical but to the point. Memorable phases and daily challenges will help you gain momentum and experience freedom.

Kids and students need forgiveness too. In a world where anger, hatred, and division are all rising, the forgiveness of Jesus has never more been needed. Help your child learn about forgiveness in these faith-formative years.

Unify your church. Grow your small groups. Discover freedom together. Start a movement with done-for-you resources and join the hundreds of churches that have seen proven results in Jesus-centered 40-Day Challenges.

Discover the 5 Phases Leading to Freedom​


Phase 1: Sin​

Experiencing freedom starts by acknowledging that we have all missed the mark.

Phase 2: Confession

It’s what we do after sin that determines whether we experience freedom. God invites us to bring our sin to Him.

Phase 3: Absolution​

Discover how the consequence of every sin of every person, including yours, has been paid for in full by the blood of Jesus.​

Phase 4: Restoration​

The forgiveness of Jesus moves us forward by restoring our identity and inviting us to live with purpose.​

Phase 5: Sanctification​

True freedom comes when we participate with Jesus in bringing His kingdom to this Earth right now. Follow Jesus!​

How is Forgiving Challenge Different?​

Far more people struggle with reconciling their own mistakes than forgiving others. While we ought always to excel in being gracious to others, Forgiving Challenge is unique because it leads its readers on a personal journey to truly understand and receive God’s forgiveness. Also, we are invited to then live out of the forgiveness that Jesus has already won for us. A forgiven person is a forgiving person.
