Identity in Christ

5 Marks of a Faith Driven Entrepreneur

 
 

Faith Driven Entrepreneurs have lives that have been transformed by the Gospel, that have accepted the gift of salvation, and now seek to bring God glory as their greatest and highest purpose.

We understand that our identity is as His beloved children with full inheritance rights through the righteousness given to us through His Son. We let this reality sink in, and are fueled by gratitude for it in such a way that we thing bring all that we are with joy to the altar as our meaningful form of worship.

Faith Driven Entrepreneurs are followers of Christ first, who continue to work out our salvation with fear and trembling, and yet with confidence. We are leaders that are committed to seeking God through regular time with His Scriptures, in prayer, and with others. We are leaders that are members of a local Church community.

Initiatives:

  1. Assesment of how we are doing in fully receiving the Gospel vs. being fuelled by a feeling that we need to “earn” something

  2. Daily Time in God's Word

  3. Local Church Membership

  4. Small Group Participation and/or Accountability group

  5. Counsel/guidance from a Mentor

  6. We live generously (tithing and giving out of gratitude for gift given us)
