Identity

 

Who are You?

So many people I see, treat and talk with have an identity crisis — they do not know who they are.  They have believed lies spoken over them instead of the truth of who they are and who they can become.  Throughout our lifetime the things family, friends, teachers and even enemies say to us stick with us and the words become part of who we believe we are.  Believing negative things about oneself can lead to a cycle of negative choices.  However believing positive things about oneself can lead to a cycle of positive choices.

At Trinity we want to help you balance your mind, body and spirit.  In order to do this, you must learn who you are.  In order to be freed from the lies of your past you must hear the truth of God’s word.  Nothing is more liberating than agreeing with Christ about how He sees you and how He feels about you.

The following ‘alphabet list’ is just the beginning of the riches of your identity that can be found in the Bible.
