Testimony – How I Became a Christian

I was blessed to be born to a couple who loved and served Jesus. My father was in ministry, so I grew up a “preacher’s kid”. I loved Jesus, loved learning about Him, and was surrounded by wonderful people who enjoyed sharing His story. I was young when I started asking if I could be baptized. I knew I sinned, and I knew Jesus died for those sins, and I understood that Jesus provided a way of forgiveness. My father baptized me when I was seven. I have continued to love Jesus, to love learning about Him and I continue to be surrounded by wonderful people who love sharing His story.
