People are exhausted from working hard to create an identity for themselves.  The gospel story offers the liberating reality that through Jesus our identity can be given, not earned.  We strive to view ourselves through the lens of these four Gospel Identities: DisciplesFamilyMissionariesServants.


In the Great Commission, Jesus said to "Go and make disciples of all nations." So what is a disciple? Simply:  a disciple is a follower. In our case, we are followers of Jesus. As followers of Jesus we have been given a new identity. Our baptism (in the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit) perfectly explains the new identity we have in Christ.

  • God the Father has adopted us into his family. Therefore we are Family.
  • God the Son (Jesus) is the King whom we serve. Therefore we are Servants.
  • God the Holy Spirit sends us out in His power as Missionaries. Therefore we are Missionaries.


We are a Family. God, the perfect Father, has adopted us as His children.  Rather than a random collection of individuals, we live in committed relationships as brothers and sisters.  We arrange our lives to maximize the opportunity to be a part of each others’ lives.  We gather regularly to eat, celebrate, and share life.


We are Missionaries. Jesus sent His Spirit to enable His Church to be a conduit of blessing to the world.  We actively engage and bless our communities with the good news that our world belongs to God.


We are Servants. Jesus not only rules supremely over all the earth, but he intentionally disadvantaged himself for the sake of others.  Because Jesus was willing to serve us to the point of death, we are committed to serving each other and our cities.  We humbly and sacrificially serve by blessing people in word, deed and gifts.


We are excited about what God is up to in our city. If you are interested in knowing more about Resonate, consider grabbing coffee with Pastor Shane.  He would love nothing more than to sit down with you and share more about the story of Resonate and how we believe the Holy Spirit is working to saturate Nashville with the good news of Jesus Christ.
