Best word combination in the English Bible: IN CHRIST

Last Sunday, we began a message series at Bridge Church called Connected. This series will define the future vision and direction of our church, as well as our discipling and assimilation process. Six words that we want to be our broken record at Bridge Church:


We kicked off the new decade talking about one of my favorite word combinations in the Bible: IN CHRIST. These two words are together in the New Testament around 150 times. It defines the spiritual place of residence for every believer.

What does it mean to be in Christ? I’m going to be doing a personal study on these words together in the New Testament for awhile, but here’s three things from my message Sunday.

A place where we BECOME WHAT WE’RE NOT. Ephesians 4:22-24

A place where we KNOW & DO GOD’S WILL. Romans 12:1-2

A place where we FIND REAL LIFE. John 10:10

Join us this Sunday, 10:30am, at the West St. Tammany YMCA as we talk about Growing IN Christ.
