Identity Defined

Pete Briscoe

How would you define yourself? We live in a world that is constantly trying to define us based on achievement, financial standing, appearance, or popularity. Many of us struggle under the force of these lies, and we end up believing false perceptions of ourselves. But if you're in Christ, there's good news—HE defines your identity!

So what is our identity as Christians? In this series, Pete Briscoe shares how Scripture defines who we are in Christ. He reminds us we are more than any definition society may give us. Pete's teaching will have you reconsidering who you really are. In Christ, you have a new identity, and if you grasp it, it can change your reality today!

Messages From This Series:

  1. 3. You Are a Living Saint

    Pete Briscoe

    We tend to believe we're "sinners saved by grace." While it's true that we are born sinners, we're in error if, as Christians, we continue to claim that identity. Falsely believing we're sinners, only leads to a cycle of sinful tendencies. Pete reminds us that in Christ, we are no longer sinners—we are saints!

    Will you accept you're "a saint who sometimes sins," or will you continue to believe you're still just a sinner?

    Scripture:  1 Corinthians 1:1 - 1:2

  2. 4. You Are God's Agent

    Pete Briscoe

    Suffering is inevitable, but when it comes, do you protest and ask, "How could God let this happen to me?" What if, instead of protesting, we embraced suffering? The concept is countercultural, but a powerful thing happens when we embrace suffering—Christ is revealed through us.

    How will Christ express Himself as you resist the desire to run from suffering and embrace your difficult circumstance?

    Scripture:  2 Corinthians 4:5 - 4:12

  3. 5. You Are Connected to God

    Pete Briscoe

    How would you describe your relationship to the church? Are you engaged in the church, or have you distanced yourself and feel disconnected? For various reasons, it's sometimes easy for us to drift away from the church and isolate ourselves. But God's desire is to build a vibrant, interconnected, and beautiful church—and He wants you to be a part of it!

    Scripture:  1 Peter 4:7 - 4:77 , 2 Peter 2:4 - 2:10

  4. 6. You Are God's Ambassador

    Pete Briscoe

    As Christians, we know the Gospel message by heart, but when it comes to sharing it with others, we panic. We avoid sharing it because we tell ourselves we're not gifted or articulate enough. The truth is if we're in Christ, we are His ambassadors sent to share the good news with everyone.

    Will you accept your identity as a carrier of the world's greatest message?

    Scripture:  2 Corinthians 5:14 - 5:21
