Our New Identity as a New Creation in Christ Jesus
A New Creation
Therefore, if anyone is united with the Messiah, he is a new creation—the old has passed; look, what has come is fresh and new! 2 Corinthians 5:17
What we are about
No matter where we are in our walk with christ, applying god’s truths in our everyday lives can sometimes be a real challenge. Even if we know what the bible teaches us about our new identity in jesus, we often find ourselves stuck, unable to get past that surface-level knowledge.
Perhaps these questions have been on your heart lately. You may ask yourself, “am i really a new creation now, or is this something i only get to look forward to in heaven?” or “i don’t act or feel like i am made new in christ, can i really experience what the bible says?”
We here at new creation517 understand these questions and that it can sometimes be a struggle to live within your new identity in jesus. Our desire is to come alongside you, through individual discipleship and community partnership with local churches, helping you discover the answer to these questions as we guide you in partnering biblical knowledge with everyday life. We invite you to take a step of faith and find out what it means to rest on the truth of the cross of jesus christ and subsequently live in the fullness of your new identity in christ.
Mission Statement: Our mission is to call people to repentance, teaching believers what it means to be a New Creation in Christ and how to live out of their new identity in Jesus.
Then I saw a new heaven and a new earth, for the old heaven and the old earth had passed away, and the sea was no longer there. Also I saw the holy city, New Yerushalayim, coming down out of heaven from God, prepared like a bride beautifully dressed for her husband. I heard a loud voice from the throne say, “See! God’s Sh’khinah is with mankind, and he will live with them. They will be his people, and he himself, God-with-them, will be their God. He will wipe away every tear from their eyes. There will no longer be any death; and there will no longer be any mourning, crying or pain; because the old order has passed away.” Revelation 21:1–4
When the Messiah was executed on the stake as a criminal, I was too; so that my proud ego no longer lives. But the Messiah lives in me, and the life I now live in my body I live by the same trusting faithfulness that the Son of God had, who loved me and gave himself up for me. Galatians 2:20
Therefore, let us approach the Holiest Place with a sincere heart, in the full assurance that comes from trusting—with our hearts sprinkled clean from a bad conscience and our bodies washed with pure water.
