As I opened my heart to God's Spirit and opened the pages of God's Word,
I began to discover the riches buried within the two-word phrase, "in Christ".

To be "in" with Christ.

To have our means be found in Christ.

Introducing :

"In CHRIST, We Are . . ." -

a September study delving into what it means to be "in Christ".


As we study scriptures and unearth treasures in God's Word,
it is my hope and prayer that we will be

renewed in our spirit,

            strengthened in our inner man,

                      fortified in our faith,

                            empowered in our everyday Christian walk,

                                     emboldened in our calling,

                                             and re-ignited in our relationship with God

as together, we discover who we are in Christ Jesus our Lord.
