Steve Jaeger

In "The Good & Beautiful Community," we see ourselves as culture-makers who are part of creating healthy, Christ-reflecting culture in every arena of our lives. Pastor Steve Jaeger preached from Colossians 3:1-11 on authenticity.

Intro: What is true authenticity?

I. True authenticity requires putting off our "false self"
   A. Recognize that it's there.
   B. Acknowledge that it's already dead.
   C. Abandon its corpse.

II. True authenticity requires putting on our "true self"
   A. Acknowledge it's already alive.
   B. Embrace & live into your new identity in Christ.
