Where do Americans find their identity?

NASHVILLE (BP) -- In "Overcomer," a new film from Alex and Stephen Kendrick opening Aug. 23, a young girl struggles to understand where her identity is grounded. Most Americans say they find their identity in relationships and achievements, according to a new study.
LifeWay Research asked 1,010 Americans about their sense of identity and what matters most about themselves. The study was conducted Sept. 21-23, 2018. These are important questions to ask, said Alex Kendrick, director of "Overcomer."
"There is an ongoing debate in our culture about who or what gets to determine our identity," he said. "We believe the Creator gets to define His creation. When we find our personal identity in Christ, then that is the truest and most stable foundation we could have."
Few Americans, however, say religion in general or faith in Christ specifically is at the forefront of their identity.
