VV Baptism Testimonies

Sue Burton

I was blessed to be born into a Christian home & my Dad helped me to learn that Jesus Christ died to pay the price for my sins. I invited Jesus into my life at a very young age so I do not have a dramatic “before & after” story.   I was only 3 or 4 years old when I asked Jesus to be my savior.  I understood that God loved me and offered everlasting life to those who believe that Jesus is God’s son and that he died to pay for the sins of the world. That was a deal too good to pass up.  Because I did not have a specific time I could point to as the start of my relationship with Jesus, I reaffirmed my salvation at a Campus Crusade Camp in September of 1969 when I was 17.  My Dad took responsibility for teaching me God’s Word.  He made sure that I understood what Jesus had done for me and that I was clear about what I believed.  With Jesus in my life I feel loved and secure.  I remember as a very young girl, walking outside in my back yard and conversing with my Savior and feeling His presence.  (I believe that God’s word is the  source of truth and that feelings alone cannot be counted on.)  God has been with me throughout the ups and downs of my life.  Jesus paid the ultimate price to give the gift of everlasting life to me and everyone else who will Admit that they are a sinner, Believe that Jesus died to pay the price for sin and Choose to accept Jesus as Savior.
