Our Father God sent His only Son Jesus to die on the Cross to redeem us and by our belief in Jesus, from our hearts, we are saved. This gives us our New Identity as adopted sons and daughters of God. We are never again called sinners in the Bible. New Identity Ministry is about the heart, about helping people find the treasure that God gave us in salvation, a Good Heart. We are focused on helping people connect to all the fullness of life that God has for them. So we meet in small groups and mentor individuals following the pattern of Jesus. We are also meeting everyother Sunday morning and Wednesday evening, so please call to make sure we are meeting this week.

A Christian's New Identity is confirmed in many scriptures, here are just a few.

  • Matthew 5:48 “In a word, what I'm saying is, Grow up. You're kingdom subjects. Now live like it. Live out your God-created identity”. MSG or "Therefore you shall be perfect, just as your Father in heaven is perfect." NKJV
  • 2 Corinthians 5:17 “What this means is that those who become Christians become new persons. They are not the same anymore, for the old life is gone. A new life has begun!" NLT or "Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new." NKJV
  • Galatians 6:15 “Neither circumcision nor uncircumcision means anything; what counts is a new creation.” NIV or "For in Christ Jesus neither circumcision nor uncircumcision avails anything, but a new creation." NKJV

These scriptures establish and clarify our God created New Identity. So we perceive in these verses a person is created anew, and yet we are still residing in the flesh until Jesus returns. We are inwardly, spiritually and irrevocably made new, the sin nature is removed. So with our newly created life in Christ we have our New Identity.

We also recognize that we are on this journey together, we have not yet arrived, and each of us are at different places along the journey. So we give grace to everyone for where they are in whatever degree they have learned to walk in their New Identity.

Restoration
New Identity has been instrumental in conveying the life and freedom only Jesus provides. It's about putting the pieces back together just like they were in Adam. Restoration. New Identity counsels, disciples, and teaches with no religion.

Geoffrey Stephens discipleship
Geoffrey is doing an outstanding job leading our small group to get ready for the May 2014 Wild at Heart boot camp. The Good Heart cd's are great and present a different approach than what I am used to. Geoffrey does a great job of teaching, bonding our group of men together, and leading in-depth discussions of deep matters of the heart that need our attention to grow as followers of Jesus.

My first delving into "The Good Heart"
Hey brothers, I just wanted to take a minute to ask how everyone was doing with the books/audios that we got Monday. I have not been able to move past the first disc yet! I replayed track 7 about 8 times! I then went back and started the disc over, and found myself replaying track 4 over and over... I am both excited AND a little overwhelmed with what's being discussed. The funny thing is, I really felt like I could have been in on that discussion. Many things they said, and brought up, almost mirrored what I had said or felt for years, even some of the things I mentioned Monday night!!! I am very excited to see what will be revealed to us, and the ways God will grow each of us separately and closer together as brothers! In Christ! Shawn
