How we understand our identity has significant ramifications for how we live, how we relate to others and society, how we understand morality and how we approach the most sacred issues of life. Fundamentally, identity shapes our vision of what it means to be human.
In the book of Ephesians, Paul writes a clear message that our identity should not be found in the surrounding culture, but ‘in Christ’, to be ‘in Christ’ changes everything. It changes where true power is located; where love is to be found; where true joy is discovered; and what community you are embraced into. The best news of this new identity is that it graciously given to us through the wonderful redeeming work of Jesus.
Each week we will discover a ‘true identity’ to remember about ourselves.
To help you grow in and be reminded of your identity in Christ, there are a variety of resources we’ve created for you to engage with the truth of scripture during this teaching series, from phone wallpapers, life group discussion guides, and new short videos going deeper on each week’s topic.
Each week of the Identity series, a short video that summarises the topic will be published below. We encourage you to watch this with your life group, family or group of friends and then discuss the provided questions.
