Identity: The set of characteristics by which a person or thing is definitively recognizable or known.
Everyone has an identity. Who (or what) do you identify as? What are the characteristics by which you are definitively recognizable or known?
In our modern culture, it seems rather easy to change our identity, or at least we’ve been given the impression that it’s easy; just pick a different set of characteristics to be recognized or known by and you’re no longer bound by what you were once identified as.
But is it really that easy? Does it really work that way? Can we just make up our minds to identify as someone or something else?
There are a set of definitively recognizable or known characteristics of those who identify as Christian, that have not changed since the word ‘Christian’ became a thing—even under tremendous strain over two millennia to do so. What are they? And what do they mean for a 21st century follower of Jesus?

Pastor Dale answers your questions
How often have you misjudged someone? We all do it. We assume something about a person based on what we’ve heard, or what we’ve seen. It’s not until we really listen and get to know them that we realize just how wrong we’ve been.
There is nothing more important than a right understanding of God. Every day we have fears, concerns, and demands that distract our lives and compete for our attention. Before long, we begin to filter God’s character and nature through our experiences, creating a god in our image. When we let our misconceptions about God shape our view of Him, our suspicions grow and our faith weakens.

Because PBN Church believes in the power of prayer, we are taking 40 days to focus on it beginning on Sunday, September 13, 2020.
Most of us these days are struggling with a difficult situation or circumstance in our life and we need a breakthrough. Whether it’s praying for a breakthrough in marriages, health, finances, or relationships, persistent prayer is how God moves to transform people’s lives.

It’s been said that Jesus came to comfort the afflicted, and to afflict the comfortable, so we’re going to take a few weekends to look at some of the situations where Jesus turned ‘normal’ into ‘awkward’ pretty quickly, forcing people to choose between the coziness of ‘we’ve always done it this way’ and a new and mostly uncomfortable way of life.
