WHO ARE YOU -------------
Identity is a big thing. Identity is all about answering a key question — who are you — how do you view yourself?

How people view themselves has a huge impact on their behavior and their relationships. Many folks link up with the wrong people, make really bad decisions and never fulfill their God-designed purpose all because of a twisted, diminished sense of self-worth and value.

One of the great things God wants to do in all of us is to totally heal and transform our identity. When we come into a personal relationship with Jesus Christ and begin to get into His Word, and begin to let His Word get into us, we discover an absolutely wonderful new identity. As we start walking in our Jesus-centered identity our inner peace and confidence grows, and our effectiveness for God grows.
