Partakers of the Divine Nature

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.  Peter is passionate about seeing the Church mature into her identity as the redeemed, powerful, spotless Bride of Jesus Christ. He longs to raise up a generation that would wholeheartedly believe the Gospel is the power of God unto salvation for all who believe.

Our Father

In light of the tragic week in Dallas and in America, Pastor John leads us to the opening words of The Lord's Prayer. Jesus teaches us the unifying and humbling principal that God is "Our Father".  This shows us that we both need one another and that we have been brought into a new family where every wall of division has been destroyed in our collective acceptance in Jesus.   (MATTHEW 6:9)
 

The Trinity

This week Pastor John taught on the Trinity - That there is one God and He eternally exists as three persons. Knowing we are made in the image of the Triune God demonstrates that we are wired for relationship because our God is eternally relational in His nature. Because our God is eternally secure in joy and love, we now stand eternally secure in relationship with Him (Romans 5:1-2; Genesis 1:26; Isaiah 6:8; Matthew 3:16-17; Matthew 28:18-20; Deuteronomy 6:4-5; 1 Timothy 2:5; John 17:13-24). 

God Is

This Sunday John continued our series on Identity by looking at who God is. God is spirit, fire, light and love. As we encounter His presence we are changed and leave with a greater understanding of who we are (John 4:24; Hebrews 12:28-29; 1 John 1:5; 1 John 4:8).

Identity

This past Sunday we started our sermon series on Identity. Identity is not something that we form in isolation but cultivated in relationships. Our desire is for our family to know who God is, what He says about us and experience His presence to better understand our own identity as sons and daughters. (Acts 4:13; 2 Corinthians 3:17-18; 1 John 4)
