In this final sermon on Identity Mark Heger discusses our innate, God-given Identities that everyone in the world shares, as well as how we can successfully identify ourselves as Christians. Using verses from Genesis and James, Mark guides us through the progression of Faith, Identity, and Action and lets us know how they relate to each other. Genesis 1; James 2:14-19
This Sunday was Giving Sunday at Normandy for the building project. Before a time of celebration and giving, we hear from Pastor John as he preaches through several scriptures to show God's heart to provide and care for His born-again, adopted children. To quote Major Ian Thomas, "if you are told what to do and do as your told, even the ravens will feed you." (1 Kings 17:4-6; Philippians 4:11-19; Hebrews 13:5-6; Malachi 3:6-12)

This week we hear from Jerry Williams. Jesus came to bring life to His people. He came to establish His Kingdom and make it available to us. Our job as His people is to have the same atmosphere in our minds and hearts that is in heaven and to bring those around us into an experience with Him. John 1:1-5; Mark 1:14
Peter Louis teaches us on the righteousness of God that we have in Jesus Christ. Our old nature was done away with and our new divine nature as children of God is being formed within us until the day we see Jesus face to face. As children of God, our identity is no longer slaves of sin, but slaves of righteousness. 1 Corinthians 15, 2 Peter 1:4, John 1:12-13, 1 Corinthians 5:17, Galatians 3, Luke 15, Genesis 3:7.
Peter lives in Lake Highlands with his wife, Kristi, and three children. He leads Braveheart Ministries.

He longs to raise up a generation that would wholeheartedly believe the Gospel is the power of God unto salvation for all who believe.
This week Justus Murimi talks from Exodus on God's desire to show off his power in our lives like he did with the Israelites before the Red Sea. Exodus 14:10-14
This Sunday Pastor John preached on union with Christ. We are eternally secure in Jesus because we are predestined in Christ, we've been crucified with Christ, raised with Christ and will ultimately be adopted through Christ (Ephesians 1:3-8; John 19:30; Hebrews 10:12-14; Ephesians 2:4-6; 1 John 1:3).
