Favorite Verse: Matthew 7:21-23, “Not everyone who says to me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the kingdom of heaven, but the one who does the will of my Father who is in heaven. On that day many will say to me, ‘Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in your name, and cast out demons in your name, and do many mighty works in your name?’ And then will I declare to them, ‘I never knew you; depart from me, you workers of lawlessness.”

My Testimony: “I grew up having a church background, attending semi-regularly. I had an understanding of who God was and what Jesus did on the cross but I did not understand that I could not save myself. I thought, “God can’t send a kid like me to hell”. It wasn’t until college where I saw my sin for what it truly was for the first time and realized that I was separated from God because of my sin, and I could not save myself. Jesus became my savior and my desires began to change over time and I wanted to read my Bible and make His name known.”
