When/How did you begin your relationship with Jesus Christ?
I grew up in a Christian home and was in church since the cradle. I made a profession of faith in Jesus when I was 9 years old and reaffirmed my faith in the Lord while in Seminary in Ft. Worth Texas in November of 1981. I am still in the process of growing in Christ and will continue to do so until He calls me home. I was saved, I am being saved, and I will be saved, all because of Jesus and what He did for me through His death, for my sin, and through His Resurrection, that gives me life and hope for today and for eternity.
