“Before I put my faith in Christ I had led what I thought was a fairly normal life. I was raised in a good home with good parents and I can remember attending church occasionally. However, as I went through college and my twenties, I rarely gave much thought about my spiritual well-being. I considered myself spiritually undecided about what I had faith in. In my later twenties I got married and started a family.
“Desiring to raise our family in the Christian faith, we wanted to start going to church and decided to do so one Easter Sunday. We attended Charleston Baptist Church that particular Sunday and kept attending weekly.
“After a few months, I knew that I was still spiritually undecided and was confronted with the fact of my own imperfect sinfulness and my need of forgiveness and reconciliation with God. I just knew I had to make that ultimate decision whether to follow Jesus or not. Something kept pulling and tugging at my soul and I knew I couldn’t or shouldn’t resist it.
“On July 7th of 2013, I decided to humble myself and come to faith in Jesus as my savior and haven’t regretted that decision one day. The only regret is that I wish I had done it sooner.
“Since then, my relationship to God has grown and in ways that I never could have expected. I have gained a deeper love and appreciation for this gift of life and for all that God has blessed me with. The walk of faith is not easy at times but I know that God is always with me and I can continuously put my trust in faith in Him every day.”
