Who We Are.
But God is so rich in mercy, and he loved us so much, that even though we were dead because of our sins, he gave us life when he raised Christ from the dead. (It is only by God’s grace that you have been saved!)
Paul in his letter to the church in Ephesus spends the first three chapters declaring to the communities of Jesus followers in and around the city who they are in Christ. Paul wants them to be firmly grounded in their identity before he gets to anything else. In Christ, even though we are broken, and are participants in a fractured world, Jesus' work on the cross and in his resurrection gives us new life. The life that we begin to experience now and will fully realize upon his return.
I am excited about Mariners Ranch Church being an example of this new life in the community. God continually has shown himself to be present, and at work in our planning. Please continue to join us in prayer for how we can join God in what he is already doing.
