​Being Baptized As a Adult: The Freedom I Found in Declaring My Faith

There is so much I can say about the picture above, but the one word that describes it is freedom! I was baptized as a baby and decided as an adult to choose to be baptized again because of my faith journey and God calling me to do it.

For many years I fought Him on this because of so many reasons, but recently I publicly declared my faith in front of my whole church to let everyone know how much I love Jesus and how thankful I am for Him raising me to life and being a new person in Him. I still have a long way to go but I am so excited about this next stage in my Christian walk!

If you would like to hear my story please reach out to me. I love to share what God has done in my life and what He can do in yours as well! 

"This means that anyone who belongs to Christ has become a new person. The old life is gone; a new life has begun!" 2nd Cor 5:17

"May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit." Romans 15:13
