I was born into a loving family on January 6th, 1986. Although I went to church most Sundays of my life and even completed catechism classes, I was still dead in my sins on the morning of August 19th, 2001 at age 15. 

That night at Northway Baptist Church in Angleton, TX I heard the clear presentation of the gospel of Jesus Christ, repented of my sins and declared Jesus the Lord of my life. At that moment I was forgiven of my sins, filled with the joy of the Holy Spirit, sealed with the promise of everlasting life and adopted into the family of God. 

Since that day, the testimony of my life is at least these three things:

1) Whatever this world has to offer, God is better

2) No matter my sins, God has forgiven me forever

3) The fullness of purpose, meaning and joy is only found in God

9 If you declare with your mouth, “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. 10 For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you profess your faith and are saved.
— Romans 10:9-10
