Testimony of saving faith for Christians only
Jesus saved me when I was 17, right before college. I was very sorry for my sins and needed to be forgiven. The peace and joy I felt is still palpable 40 years later.

I've been a Christian for over 40 years and am continually thankful for Jesus' friendship and care. I'm married and have three grown children.
