What is the 220 Experience?
 
 The 220 Experience embraces Galatians 2:20 as the drive and purpose for Christian living. 
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.
(Galatians 2:20, ESV)
 
 Many ask:
Who am I? 
Why am I hurting so much? 
 
Why does God seem far away at times?
Why do I keep failing over and over? I try so hard!
Why do I work so hard for other people’s approval and acceptance? 
 
Is there an answer for my difficult relationships? 
How do I maximize my spiritual growth? I can't seem to get there!
How can I live the abundant life Jesus promised?  
 
The answer - we are not embracing God's created intent for us. We weren't designed to live independently. God's created intent was for us to live from His Life (Genesis 2:7). Sin gets in the way! (Romans 3:23). Our thoughts, choices, and feelings are polluted by sin's influence, so that we miss receiving and/or experiencing God's Life. 
 
The Gospel of Jesus Christ is the solution (Romans 7:2-25). The only possible corrective for our sin-condition, counteractive for our destructive addictions and false identities, and cure for our spiritual ailment is to ask God to exchange our hopeless and helpless lives for Jesus' Life.
'See to it that no one fails to obtain the grace of God'...
(Hebrews 12:15, ESV)
 
Some call this the Deeper Life (Romans 6:5-7). Others use phrases like: the Surrendered Life (John 6:38), the Spirit-filled Life (Galatians 5:18), the Exchanged or Crucified Life (Galatians 2:20)... Regardless of title, our greatest purpose is Jesus living His Life in and through us (Colossians 1:27). So how do we embrace this Life God has purposed for us (Colossians 3:1-4)?  
 
 
The Course: the Find True Identity Series is this site's opportunity, teaching us how. It is an exchange in identity. It is new Life. It is Jesus' Life living in us! Jesus is our true identity.       
 

Here is a list to various Exchanged Life organizations this ministry recommends to you. These colleagues teach how to exchange your life for New-Life!
