DOCTRINE, IDENTITY, RHYTHMS
All that we are called to be and do flows from the Gospel. Understanding the correct flow might be best understood in this order: doctrine, identity, and rhythms. We start with God, who has most clearly and powerfully revealed himself in Jesus Christ (Doctrine – what we believe). It is then through the life and work of Jesus that we rightly receive and understand who we are, both as individuals and as a community (Identity – who we are). Then, in knowing who Jesus is and who we are in light of Him, we come to know how we ought to live in the everyday stuff of life (Rhythms – how we live).
