Exodus 3:13-15 – And Moses said unto God, Behold, when I come unto the children of Israel, and shall say unto them, The God of your fathers hath sent me unto you; and they shall say to me, What is his name? what shall I say unto them? And God said unto Moses, I AM THAT I AM: and he said, Thus shalt thou say unto the children of Israel, I Am hath sent me unto you. And God said moreover unto Moses, Thus shalt thou say unto the children of Israel, the Lord God of your fathers, the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob, hath sent me unto you: this is my name for ever, and this is my memorial unto all generations.
When God calls Moses to return to Egypt to bring the people out that land, Moses asks what will the people say the name of the God of our fathers is. God says that His name is I AM, I AM THAT I AM. This is God’s name forever. It is His memorial unto all generations.
As Jesus testified before the Pharisees concerning His Father, He explained His own existence as God. Jesus said that before Abraham was, I AM (John 8:58, read entire chapter for context). Jesus is God who became flesh (John 1:1-14); the image of the invisible God; the firstborn of every creature; He is before all things, and by Him all things consist; He is the head of the body of the church: who is the beginning (Colossians 1:12-18).
I AM is His name forever.
