Big Sandy Regional Conference
I was raised Catholic and I knew stories about Jesus but was never born again. I rejected the teachings of the Catholic church and lived as an agnostic from my early teens through my mid twenties.
I married the love of my life in 1994 and started attending a her family’s home church. It was there I heard God ‘s Word preached for the first time in my life. As a Catholic, I never once opened a Bible. Through the course of several months of hearing the truth of the scriptures, I came to the realization that I was not saved, and if I died I would spend eternity in Hell. I had violated God’s Holy Law and would be found guilty on judgement day. The wages of sin is death, and I would get what I truly deserved. There was nothing I could do to save myself.
I repented of my sins and believed the Gospel on October 4, 1995. I believe that Jesus lived a perfect life and was able to pay the penalty for my sin with his perfect blood sacrifice on the cross. By the power of God’s Spirit, he arose from the grave after three days and defeated death. Through Him and in Him I now have eternal life. I am committed to following Him and leading my family in His righteousness.
