VV Baptism Testimonies

Ruth Skare

I was raised as Catholic. We attended church every Sunday. I also completed all the required sacraments, baptized as a baby, First Holy Communion and Confirmation. I went through the motions but somehow didn't feel close to God.

 I met a friend who was a Christian and she persuaded me to attend a Christian Retreat. At this retreat, I listened to others speak of God and how it changed their lives for the better. This is when I gave my life to Jesus Christ.  At that time it didn't really have a strong impact on my life, but over the years I have grown closer to Him. I also still felt that there was one thing missing that I think I needed to get done, and that was to get baptized. So this is to be my next step to have a closer relationship with God.
