Hello my name is Fred Hughes and my heart is open to the God and I've accepted him as my Lord and Savior. I know that I'm a sinner and the Lord is exactly what I want and need in my life. I've been in church for as long as I can remember. I also know the Lord is real and I've seen his works in my life many of times. I can vaguely remember being baptized as a child but the reasons behind the baptism were more of being part of the church family and not truly understanding the meaning behind being baptized and the meaning of taking the Lord into my heart, I was too young but I knew God was always protecting me because of many of my poor decisions as a youth/young man I wouldn't be here today. Now as an adult I can truly understand the power of the Lord and wanting to change my life and that will be through the Lord. I am a father of 3 and I want to lead a more positive and God-fearing example to my kids and loved ones.
Just as I have learned in the baptism class I am ready to publicly declare to the world my faith and love for Jesus through baptism which symbolically represents my death, burial and resurrection with Christ. I want to follow the example that Christ has set for me. Through baptism I am following a command, water baptism shows others that I am following Jesus and will get me completely wet from head to toe. I hope this an acceptable testimony.
