Taylor & Trey's Baptisms

Taylor Roberts Writes:

Ever since I can remember, I always believed in God and Jesus, but I never truly acknowledged it. I didn't have knowledge to share with others, I had nothing. I thought I was living my life perfectly but I was way wrong. This past week while at church camp [not Crossing Church], I was very moved by the words of the camp pastor Rob Turner. He taught me the different types of faith, none of which are saving faith. I realized I had what he referred to as "comfort faith," which is basically having faith in God to make yourself feel safe. Not to glorify him. That's what I had for so long, and I just now realized it.

At that moment I wanted give my life to Christ, I need him. He is my savior, my God. Matthew 7: 13-14 says, "enter through the narrow gate. For the gate is wide and the road is broad that leads to destruction, and there are many who go through it. How narrow is the gate and difficult the road that leads to life, and few find it." I went through the gate, I experienced destruction. But Christ changed my heart an saved my life. I love my God, and I am ready to become a sister in Christ Jesus.

Trey Pugh Writes:

Before I started my life with Christ, I did not know nor understand a lot about him or what it meant to be a Christian. I heard about Jesus Christ from family and friends, and some who even questioned his very existence. For the longest time, I just believed that things just happened without any meaning or cause. It just happened. The more I became intrigued with astronomy, the more I felt closer with God and felt the urge for a better understanding of him and his creation

I know now what God wanted from us. He created us for him to worship him and join him like a family.

I know I have to surrender my past life even at my young age to him. I know Jesus paid for my sins both past, present, and future sins. I do believe He died and rose from the dead so I can live. I know I have to turn from my sins and try to not repeat them, but if I fail, I must confess to him my sins and repent.

My life now must be to tell people about him whenever I can, help lead them to him, and tell them Jesus truly is the Son of God, and he is our savior and we must trust in him. He is the only way to God the Father.
