Needed to Be Crucified for Me

-Crystal Shearer

Share this Post As a baby, I was baptized in a Lutheran Church. I attended services at the Lutheran Church a few times every year for 18 years thereafter.

It Was My Choice
-Jenn

As a young child I attended church regularly. I even attended a Christian school. As I was taught through the Bible, I knew the truth about what God had said. Even so, as I grew up I had no true relationship with the Lord. There was no time in my life that I made it personal to me.

Now I Stand in His Righteousness!
-Michelle Castner

On October 4, 1996, the Lord did something special in my life to bring about a true change in me. This change is so radical that I will never be the same. I would like to take this opportunity to share with you how God brought this about in my life.

Everything Looked Great…
At Least on the Outside

-Chris Gable

I grew up in a small town, the second child to two typical, middle class parents. My dad was a civil engineer, and my mom volunteered in various capacities along with being a stay-at-home mother. Both of my parents were very religious, and were consistent in taking their children to church and teaching them about God and the Bible. They even sacrificed financially so that all of their children could attend a private, Christian school.
