The iSTAND Declaration
The iSTAND Generation comprises youth groups and camps across the country and other faith formation opportunities and is underpinned by a simple and heartfelt declaration:
- I will hold to the truth that I am unconditionally loved by God regardless of my perceived successes or failures.
- I choose to truly, deeply trust in the Lord even when I make mistakes or when everything in life appears to go wrong.
- I desire to make life choices that reflect the truth that my body is a temple of the Holy Spirit.
- I choose to be counter cultural and stand for God and His ways, and be a witness to my generation of the joy of knowing God.
- I desire to have a heart for the poor and needy, and to help them in real and tangible ways by giving of my time and resources to help those less fortunate than myself.
