NewHeart Expressions (NHE) is the ministry platform for Pastor Ron Browning's outreach to sexually broken men. Find True Identity Discipleship (FTID) is NHE's discipleship path for exchanging our brokenness for the PEACE of God's freedom and wholeness. The help and healing Christian men need to walk in God's POWER and on God's PATH, both sexually and relationally.
When a God-given repentance ignites our hearts with saving faith in Jesus Christ, an inexpressible joy embarks us upon the most exciting journey:
LIFE IN CHRIST!
Galatians 2:20; Colossians 1:27; 3:1-4
A journey of reflective discovery and redemptive recovery. Where disordered thinking is reprogrammed, destructive choices redeemed, and damaged emotions remediated. A healing of the soul: of how we think, choose, and feel. About God and others. About ourselves and our struggles. Really, about everything!
Though the journey of reflection and redemption is often difficult, even painful. The Gospel (i.e., Jesus) is God's power to rescue us from the disorder, destruction, and damage—from the chaos—of life-shattering addictions and the false identities of delusional intimacies. Setting us free to learn to live free, in and from Jesus' Life living within. Where we learn to live from God's perspective. Now with that reality in mind we invite you to disciple with us, as we dive into God's Word and God's Life together.
How, you might ask?
NHE's Find True Identity Discipleship offers such an opportunity. An opportunity to surrender to God's call to repent and believe (Mark 1:15), with a repentance that leads to a Life of saving faith in Jesus Christ (Act 11:18). Then as God's children, we dive deeply into His Word. Because God has called us to the Faith Walk—a Life driven and lived by faith. Ignited by repentance. Fueled with believing. Resting in the Peace of the Power and the Path of God's Life (NHE's Triple P).
THE PEACE, THE POWER, & THE PATH OF FREEDOM!

Consider God's Word:
AN IDENTITY PURPOSE
I (Sovereign God) will sprinkle clean water on you, and you will be clean. Your filth will be washed away, and you will no longer worship idols. And I will give you a new heart, and I will put a new spirit in you. I will take out your stony, stubborn heart and give you a tender, responsive heart. And I will put my Spirit in you so that you will follow my decrees and be careful to obey my regulations. And you will live in (freedom and peace)... You will be my people... I will be your God.
(Ezekiel 36:25-28, NLT, emphasis mine)
For our sake He (Father God) made Him (Jesus Christ the Son of God) to be sin who knew no sin, so that in Him (Jesus) we might become the righteousness of God.
(2 Corinthians 5:21, emphasis mine)
AN IDENTITY PATH
So we see that they were unable to enter the rest (of God's Life) because of unbelief... (but then we see) we who have believed enter that rest... having passed from death to Life.
(Hebrews 3:19; 4:3; John 5:24, emphasis mine)
I have been crucified with Christ. It is no longer I who live, but Christ who lives in me. And the Life I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave Himself for me... Christ has set us free to live a free Life. So take your stand! Never again let anyone put a harness of slavery on you.
(Galatians 2:20, ESV; 5:1, the Message)
God did this because He wanted you... to understand His wonderful and glorious mystery. And the mystery is that Christ lives in you, and He is your Hope of sharing in God’s glory... So if you’re serious about living this new resurrection Life with Christ, act like it. Pursue the things over which Christ presides. Don’t shuffle along, eyes to the ground, absorbed with the things right in front of you. Look up, and be alert to what is going on around Christ—that’s where the action is. See things from His perspective... Your old life is dead. Your new Life, which is your real Life.... is with Christ in God. He is your Life.
(Colossians 1:27, CEV; 3:1-4, the Message)
AN IDENTITY PROMISE
Now, may the God of peace and harmony set you apart, making you completely holy. And may your entire being—spirit, soul, and body—be kept completely flawless in the appearing of our Lord Jesus, the Anointed One. The One who calls you by name is trustworthy and will thoroughly complete His work in you.
(1 Thessalonians 5:23-24, the Passion)
For the Word of God is living and active, sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing to the division of soul and of spirit, of joints and of marrow, and discerning the thoughts and intentions of the heart.
