Identity in Christ

What We Believe  


“Who am I” has to be one of the most important and most asked questions in our lifetimes. Whether we ask it out loud or subconsciously we all want to know who we are. What is our identity?

Who am I?

• Am I Loved and Significant?


• Do I have Purpose?


• Do I Belong?



Romans 8:14-19
For all who are led by the Spirit of God are children of God. For you did not receive a spirit of slavery to fall back into fear, but you have received a spirit of adoption. When we cry, “Abba! Father!” it is that very Spirit bearing witness with our spirit that we are children of God


Mark 2:15-17
And as He sat at dinner in Levi’s house, many tax collectors and sinners were also sitting with Jesus and His disciples—for there were many who followed Him. When the scribes of the
Pharisees saw that He was eating with sinners and tax collectors, they said to His disciples, “Why does He eat with tax collectors and sinners?” When Jesus heard this, He said to them, “Those who are well have no need of a physician, but those who are sick; I have come to call not the righteous but sinners.”
