Misfits on a Mission, Finding Identity in Jesus

Zip Code Teaching Series

…your life is now hidden with Christ in God. When Christ, who is your life, appears, then you also will appear with him in glory.”
— Colossians 3.3b–4 NIV

Identity and destiny are intertwined in the journey of faith and our inclusion in the body of Christ. Identity is complex, layered, and hybrid. But how we understand our rich and multifaceted identities influences our trajectory in life, how we live.

That’s why we’re calling this series “Zip Code” as a metaphor for homing in on who we are to know where we’re headed. In this series, we’ll explore: the story of God’s renewal of all things, of which we play a role; “faith stream awareness”; the exploration of our various cultural heritages; our different social locations and how we’re invited to relate to them; how our personalities inform our relationships (using the Enneagram); and finally our values and traditions as a local expression of the body of Christ.

As a community we are a rich tapestry of identities being woven together to form the image of Christ.
