I was 34 years old when I was saved and became a Christian. I knew about Jesus and the cross at an early age. I knew in my own heart that I had rejected the gospel message of the cross, God’s love gift, by sending His own Son Jesus Christ to shed His blood and die on the cross for the payment of sin. Jesus then rose the third day and ascended into heaven to sit down on the throne of God. On April 15th, 1990, I understood by the preaching of the Gospel Message and the conviction of the Holy Spirit that I was a lost sinner that needed to be forgiven and saved from the eternal judgment of God in Hell. That day I believed by faith in the gospel of the sacrificial death of Jesus Christ on the cross that paid the eternal penalty for all my sins, and His resurrection from the dead that gives me hope and assurance of my future resurrection of eternal life in Heaven. From that very day my desire immediately was to begin reading and begin obeying God's word and praying as well as telling others about my salvation experience with Jesus Christ, and their need to believe in Jesus themselves. I began attending a Christian Church to worship and fellowship with other Christians of like faith. Every day has been lived with that eternal blessed hope of assurance that when my life ends on this earth, I will then also live eternally in Heaven with Jesus and all who have and will put their faith and trust in Him. Thank you, God, for loving me and Jesus for saving me, my Lord and my Savior.
