It was November 1, 2018, I was in the bathtub and I was washing my hair as I put my head under the water it reminded me of baptism. Then I started thinking, I thought about how I was not saved yet and I said to myself “I need to be saved”. I started singing songs from school and I thought yeah, I definitely needed to be saved. After that I stood up to wash my hair for real again and I started singing, but this time it was a preschool J.A.M. song from school it was “I’ve Got Peace Like a River” (the kind with water), it said I’ve got peace like river in my soul, I was thinking I don’t really have it in my soul if I’m not saved so, then I was like I need to be saved now!

I went to my mom and said, I need to be saved so I prayed and then I was a Christian. We called my siblings then my grandparents. Then before I went to bed my sister called as I was heading to my room, I said goodnight double sister. I’m reading the New Testament now and will be baptized in December.

I have grown up in church for as long as I remember. I am thankful to have a mom that prays for me. I realized at 6 years old that i had a sin problem and i could never be good enough for Heaven. I needed Jesus to forgive my sins and make me clean. I am so grateful for Jesus saving me and showing me things about his Word as i have grown up. 

 My 9th grade year at falls creek I felt God`s call to ministry and then learned my mom was also praying for that as well. God has placed several people in my life to help me grow. A mom,dad and sister that really pushed me in  my walk with God. I have known my wife since i was young and have gotten to grow up with her. We were married on June 14, 2008 and now have a son Malachi who and we are enjoying our time serving God together here at Martha Road.

I grew up in a Christian home, my Dad was the chairman of the deacons my Mom taught Sunday School, and we went to church each and every time the doors were open. The fondest memories I have as a child include church and my church family. Even though I grew up in church I knew I had done wrong, was selfish, and lived to do what I wanted to do and this was wrong. I need someone to save me from these choices.

On January 20, 1990 I was sitting at home talking with my Mom and my sister and I realized that I was a sinner and I need someone greater than myself to be in charge of my life. That night I invited Jesus Christ into my life to be my Lord, my Master, and my Savior. It was single handily the best decision I have ever made and I do not regret making the decision to allow Christ to be Lord of my life!

I have been living to serve Him ever since He took over. I truly enjoy telling others about the best decision I have ever made and how Christ has turned my life around. Each and every day I wake up and I see God at work in my daily life. I have grown to the point that I rely on God for my power, my strength, and my joy! I no longer worry about life like I had before. God’s good!

I was dead in my sins and trespasses following the course of this world.

God, rich in mercy, while I was dead in trespasses, made me alive with Christ. Not by my own doing but by His grace alone, He saved me.

Having been brought near by the blood of Christ, I am now able to do the good works that God prepared beforehand for me to do.was dead in my sins and trespasses following the course of this world.

You're going to Hell! That preacher was pointing right at me. I started to cry and headed down that aisle. Not me! I was 9 years old when I got my fire insurance. You see, I saw God as the white-haired Zeus cartoon character, with the lightning bolt in His hand sitting on the cloud waiting to zap me when I messed up. Jesus was His Son who loved me, for the Bible tells me so, and the Holy Ghost was Casper with a halo. I did go forward but I didn't have a relationship with God

Later in adulthood, I found myself empty and searching for attention, needing to be needed, willing to do whatever it took to have people like me. That path lead to destruction. I was hurt, and I hurt people. My pride nearly kept me from the healing Christ had for me. I surrendered to Him and began reading His word to hear what He had for me.

My relationship with Christ has shown me a new life. One with joy and peace that I had never had before. Do I still struggle? You bet I do, but I know He will provide for me a way out when I am tempted. I now have brothers that walk along side of me on this journey. We hold each other accountable and “as iron sharpens iron, one man sharpens another. Prov 27:17 I have a new heart with a desire to serve without expectation of return. My eyes now look for opportunities to share the amazing love Christ has given me.
