Our identity is in Jesus Christ. We are the chosen, holy and beloved children of God, forgiven and restored. That identity (who we are) directs how we then live as followers of the Lord Jesus under the guidance of the Holy Spirit. Text: Colossians 3:12-17
We are brought into right relationship with God through the transforming grace of Jesus Christ. Yet we know that there is unfinished work in our own lives, and much is awry in our world. We follow Jesus in obedience and in the hope of the coming perfection. Text: Matthew 5:6.
By faith, we anticipate the end of the age, when God will conclude history and make all things right. In the mean time, we live in the confidence that God is good and that lives can be transformed by encountering Christ. Text: Matthew 13:24-30, 36-43
