What does it mean to be a Christian?


A Christian is someone who is becoming like Christ. It sounds simple, but it's only possible through a relationship with Jesus Christ. Fully God and fully man, Jesus came to this earth, lived a perfect life, died to pay for everything we did wrong, and rose from the dead so that we could enjoy life with Him (Loving God, Loving People and Living Surrendered). He's already done everything for our salvation. Our role is to surrender our life to Him and follow Him.

 Personal Testimonies


I never had this big “aha” moment. Faith was never something that hit me like a ton of bricks. Before I found Jesus I was just living day to day not knowing why, but knowing that there is “something” out there that created me for a reason. Prior to getting married, my husband and I began to learn and follow what the Bible says about marriage. This led me to follow Jesus. It is powerful to know that all the sins that I have ever committed and will continue to commit are forgiven. I have changed by allowing myself to be more selfless in my actions. I trust in something I cannot see, but I can see change in my life every day.


used to live only for myself until I met my wife. She loved me and wanted to marry me. We both came from broken families with plenty of divorces, so it was hard for me to actually believe in marriage. I did some investigating on what marriage actually was and where it came from. I ended up reading the Bible and going to church. I found my Savior and married that girl who I believe saved my life. We have a strong marriage that was built on Jesus as our foundation. I once was lost, but now I see the world much more clearly.







When I was six years old I realized that I was a sinner and I knew that I needed forgiveness. After hearing how Jesus loved me and died for me, I prayed to receive Him as my Savior. I've gone through ups and downs in life, but Jesus’ love is the only peace you can truly know. He promises hope in an otherwise hopeless world.      Tanya
