I was raised knowing Jesus Christ. During my early growing-up years, I attended church regularly, mainly because my mother was the choir director and organist. I was baptized at the age of 14 or 15, but only because all the other members of my Sunday School were being baptized. Once I graduated high school, I drifted away from the church and over the next 20 or so years followed a few paths that I wish I hadn’t.

I began to learn about and develop a personal relationship with Jesus Christ through an excellent teaching pastor, a loving congregation, and participation in the choir

Then a co-worker and close friend invited me to a large Baptist Church, where I began to learn about and develop a personal relationship with Jesus Christ through an excellent teaching pastor, a loving congregation, and participation in the choir. I subsequently joined several Bible studies and small groups, all of which have been instrumental in helping me to continually grow in my faith.
