You’ve probably been told countless times by other people who you are, but have you ever wondered who God says you truly are? Many Christians today suffer from mistaken identity…that is they have mistaken their own identity. Too often as Christ followers, we allow our identity to be shaped by other people rather than by the creator.

“WHAT IS YOUR LIFE? YOU ARE A MIST THAT APPEARS FOR A LITTLE WHILE
Life is too short to wander, to be filled with regret, or to let opportunities pass on by. Today is

AND THEN VANISHES.” (JAMES 4:14)

Prayer. It’s something that most people know they should do, want to do, and even try to do, but in the end get frustrated not knowing how to do it. What’s more, most get bored with their prayer experience and so now they feel guilty on top of it all. It doesn’t have to be that way… Join us at CrossTown for this special one month prayer challenge and sermon series to find out that prayer is not as much a lever to be pulled, as it is a relationship to be pursued! When we learn to pray the way Jesus taught us to pray, it really could change everything!
There’s no doubt about it. We’ve all had a bout with doubt at some point in our lives. Whether its our faith, our salvation, God’s goodness, His plan for our lives, or just His willingness to answer prayers…WE ALL EXPERIENCE IT! And while there’s nothing inherently wrong with experiencing or expressing doubt, there is however something dangerously hazardous to our faith if we stay stuck in it. Either we will allow doubt to propel us deeper into a relationship with God, or derail us from our faith.
