Baptism Testimony (Joe Chen)
Life Before Christ
Before I met Christ, my life was a jumbled mess full of sin and wrongdoing. I felt like life was a game and made some dumb decisions because of that. I became anxious and thought about everything negatively, but that changed when I met Jesus.
How I met Christ
I came to church for the first time and learned about what God has done for me. I realized all the grace He has given me, which I thought was just my good luck. When I was alone and naive, God came to me and showed Himself to me. God saved me from my pain to be with Him. I received Jesus as my lord and savior because I have given control of my life to Christ and believe that He will save me from my sins.
How I changed after receiving Christ
After Jesus came into my life, I began to realize how unique life was and how much God has provided for me, and I began to sin less and trust God to lead me more. I have not been anxious about small things anymore; instead, I leave the outcome to God.
My commitment/obedience to Christ
Since trusting in God, I have allowed Him to lead me, and I trust in Him fully. I have started reading the gospel every day to get closer to Him and want to continue to live a life by His side. I want to show God to the younger generation and show them how powerful Christ is. In the future, I would like to take part in missionary trips in order to spread Christ’s word to people around the world.
I want to become baptized because I want to show that God has saved me and I want to live a new life in Christ. Praise God for bringing me out of sin and into the light.
