As a key founder of the early Judea-Christian church, Peter like all the new birth followers of Christ had to leave their present, make it their past and step into the new role and future of being carriers of the good news, of demonstrating a renewed mind and a new outlook for the future. Just like Abram who became Abraham, so did Simon become Peter signifying a new beginning, of old things, passed away and a new purpose for life. Thus, Peter became the first churchman. Jesus made him so and as required, he would take up his burden (share) for righteousness. He was given a new identity in Christ’s church. As a metaphor, he became Peter Church meaning his first name signifying his purpose (foundation, immovable) and his last, the cause (body of Christ, God embodied) respectively.
