35 Names for God

I developed this short list of biblical names for God for our youth ministry at church. The idea was to first lead our Sunday school students through God’s identity and then eventually lead them into God’s identity for them.

Of course, there are two potential sources for our gleaning our identity in this life. We can believe what the world says about us, or we can believe what God says about us; these are two wildly different things.

Since we were made in His image, there is great merit in growing in understanding our Holy Father.

I hope you can use this free PDF handout for your church’s next Sunday school!
