On August 7, 2016, Steve Bristow had the joy of baptizing three of his children, Mariah, Ryleigh, and Zeke. Below are each of their testimonies:
Mariah’s Baptism Testimony
I am thankful that Jesus died for my sins. I became aware of my sin one day when I was being mean to my brothers and sisters. I had to repent and pray to be forgiven.
“For God so loved the world that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life.” John 3:16
Ryleigh Kate’s Baptism Testimony
I am thankful for Jesus. I know that I am saved because I turned from sins to follow Jesus. Nobody can get to heaven by themselves, nobody can get to God without going through Jesus.
“The righteousness of God through faith in Jesus Christ for all who believe. For there is no distinction: for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God, and are justified by his grace as a gift, through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus.” Romans 3:22-24
Zeke’s Baptism Testimony
I’m glad Jesus died on the cross for me. He died for my sins even though I didn’t love Him. Even though I will still sin I have to turn to Jesus and turn away from my sin.
“And Peter said to them, ‘Repent and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins, and you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit.” Acts 2:38
