What does it mean to be a man? What does it mean to be a woman? Is it just binary science? Is it just testosterone or estrogen that settle this discussion? Or could there be more?  

As Jesus is changing lives, he will lead you to apply the gospel to every area of your life including who you are as a man and a woman.

This is what “Who Do You Think You Are?” is all about. We are more than just our jobs and titles, and we are more than just our gender. We were created in the Image of God.

In this series we will be answering the three questions that set us apart as humans from the rest of creation:

Who are we?
Why are we here? 
How should we live life? 

Addressing and answering these questions will help us to grow into spiritual maturity, living each day as Christ intended us to live.

When God created man, He gave him a unique identity and purpose in life. God designed a specific role for man to fulfill to order the chaos and cause humanity to flourish, but when sin entered the world, everything became fractured. Now, because of the fall, men still wrestle with particular sins and struggles.

Women's Redemption

Listen Teaching Slides You Version

In Genesis 2, after God created man, He declared that it was not good for man to be alone. Something was missing. Out of man, God created woman to complete the picture of Creation.

Man and woman are intended to live and flourish together. Together, they help each other and the Church. When men and women fulfill their God-given designs, joy and human flourishing abound.

Together and Complete
