My Personal Testimony
I grew up in a Christian home of 6. Every week my parents would take me to church and I'd hear the Bible study lessons as well as sing the songs with our church. For the first 8 years of my life, I went with that flow of going to church and going home and then, at the age of 8, I recognized a part of the future that God and I wanted for my life. I decided to follow Him and invited Him into my heart as the Lord of my future. This meant that my sins, regardless of number, were forgiven and the price for my wrongdoing was paid upon the cross by Jesus Christ, the Son of God. From then on I have been able to find rest and peace in the fact that I know my future and eternity are secured in Christ. Life hasn't been without its hills and valleys, and I only learn more each day about just how much my relationship with Christ is growing and in need of continued growth. I've sinned more times than I could count and done more foolish things then I'd like to remember. But God in His all-saving, almighty, and all-forgiving grace has forgiven me for all time and I stand now as a testament to His faithfulness. He has provided me with instruction, wisdom, and above all love from my life and family. He's blessed me beyond compare with all I could ever need and a family that supports me. I can't imagine having tried to live my life to this point without Him. He has called me into the ministry to serve Him and His people in love and guidance. And I pray daily that He would continue to guide me down the path in life that he desires for me. I'm now 23 years old (in 2021) and I have learned a great deal about God in many ways. But if I were to give a summary of the knowledge I've attained up until this point on how one should live, I would say, 'Love the Lord your God with all of your heart, with all of your soul, and with all your mind. This is the greatest and most important command. The second is like it: Love your neighbor as yourself. All the Law and the Prophets depend on these two commands.' - Matthew 22: 37-40"
