I understood that I needed to receive Jesus as my savior so I may be forgiven of my sins and go to Heaven with God and his Son. I was only eight, and life was good. But my family went through divorce and struggled for years, and God helped me through all of that and more.
I was eight when I asked Jesus into my heart as my savior. I had just spent the night with my great grandmother and she had explained the Gospel/ Right outside her front door is when I asked and received Christ. My mom, uncle, and especially my great grandmother helped me understand what to do.
I would just like to say that having God in my life has made a big difference in the person I am today. HDC has helped me understand my faith and that baptism is my next step in obedience to God.
