The theme at Believe this year is I AM.
You aren’t random. You were created as a masterpiece. Even when you don’t feel like it, you’re still unique. And you, as a masterpiece, were made by an incredible Master.
The idea of identity is a universal struggle. Every generation wrestles with it. Jr. high students sit at a pivotal moment in their lives where they are constantly asking the question “Who am I?” A student can’t truly know who they are until they know who God is. And this year CIY’s Believe tour will help Jr. high students understand what it means to find their identity in God.
There are hundreds of “I Am” statements in the Bible, but Believe will focus on four key phrases during the 2018-19 tour that will be a foundation for Jr. high students to have deeper conversations about identity: “I am God’s masterpiece,” “I am God’s child,” “I am the church” and “I am a Kingdom worker.”
Your identity is not found in what you do, but who you are. And God has made you who you are.
Who Am I? … I am who God says I am.
