I always believed in God, but didn't really know anything about him or the Bible. I didn't think you had to go to church to follow Christ. Then my wife talked me into going to HDC about 8 years ago, and I liked it. The more I learned the better I understood, and the more I liked it! My life was much more shallow and angry before I found God. I accepted Christ as my lord and savior because the more I learned about him the more it made sense. My life is calmer now, I live with more appreciation and less fear. For me, getting baptized is the next logical step in my walk with God.
