My name is Shelby and I am 13 years old. I have gone to Round Rock Church of Christ my whole life. Recently I decided to get baptized.
I know that God is real, that Jesus died on the cross and rose from the dead. A few weeks ago I was talking in the car about sin with my mom. Just because I may sin does not mean I am a bad person or a bad Christian. We all Sin. My parents sin, my grandparents sin, my sibling’s sin, the people I look up to in church sin, my youth group sins …We All SIN. That does not mean we are bad people. God knew this and he sent his One and ONLY Sinless Son to die on the Cross to save us from our sins and temptations.
During this conversation, I heard God Speaking to ME. I was overcome with Joy and Excitement. I knew I believed and knew it was time to get baptized. I choose Christ to carry my sin.
