Who I Am and Who We Are Together!

“The most important belief we possess is a true knowledge of who God is.  The second most important belief is who we are as children of God, because we cannot consistently behave

in a way that is inconsistent with how we perceive ourselves.” 

― Neil T. Anderson, Who I Am In Christ: A Devotional

Who We Are…Together!

First, the church is doxological, it’s oriented to the glory of God.  We don’t gather for ourselves but to honour and worship God!


Second, the church is Word-centered. It’s centered on the incarnate Word, who is Jesus Christ, and the inspired Word: Scripture.  For us, the Bible is the compass needle pointing to true north!  For us, the Bible is a 10,000 watt torch, lighting the path!


Thirdly, the church is to be Spirit-activated. It’s created, gifted, united, and empowered by the Holy Spirit.  The church is the portal of heaven!  The distribution point of the Holy Spirit’s work and gifts to our world!


Fourth, the church is covenantal. It exists in new covenant relationship with God, and together, the members exist in a covenantal relationship with one another.  We are intrinsically woven together into a tapestry called the church!  We can’t isolate our own personal faith from the work of God in His church!


Fifth, the church is confessional. Each member had a personal confession of faith in Jesus Christ as their Savior and Lord. Together the church confesses sound doctrine—what it believes about a triune God, Jesus Christ, the Son incarnate, and the Spirit.  We love nothing more than to declare our dependence on God and our utter reliance on His grace!


Sixth, the church is missional. It’s the body of divinely-called, divine ministers who proclaim the gospel throughout the world.  Every member a minister!  Each of us a part of the Body of Christ!  God has put purpose and mission in our hearts!


Seventh, the church is here, but not here. It’s already, but not yet. We’re sojourners, we’re strangers. We’re pilgrims in this world. We enjoy walking with the Lord and doing his will now, but we look forward to something greater in the future.




8 questions you can use to ‘ignite-a-cooling-relationship’ and reverse the effects of ‘entropy’ and ‘atrophy:

#1 “How would you rate our relationship right now?


#2 “What could I do to make you feel more loved or respected?”


#3 “What do you wish I would say to you more often?”


#4 “What is one of your dreams you would like me to support?”


#5 “What is something you wish I would stop doing?”


#6 “What is something you want or need from me?”


#7 “What is something you feel would improve our relationship?”


#8 “If you had three wishes for our future, what would they be?”


“Welcome home!  I’m sure the day has been grueling…but I’m hoping you can leave that out-there and that you have a great, relaxing evening!  Is there anything i can do to move you in that direction?”



“I was watching the way you did ______________ and my thought was, _________________!”


“Do you know what I really, deeply appreciate about you? It's _________________________!”


“I have to tell you something! When I look at you, I see ______________________________!”


“Wow! You have a lot going on! You’re _____________________, and __________________, and ____________________...and then there is __________________ and __________________! But I want you to know that I think you’re managing it so well!  It must be exhausting and yet you are able to __________________________! I want you to know I’m cheering you on!”

“Hey! I just want to thank you for ________________________! You might have thought it was no big deal, but it _______________!”


“Do you know what I find most attractive about you? It’s the way you ______________________!”


“Do you know what most people don’t know about you…but I do? You’re ___________________!”


 “Hey! I just had to take a break from what I was doing because I can’t hold it in any more: you are _______________________________!”
