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.
