Before every baptism we have the privilege to hear stories of how God has saved people in our church and community through the gospel. In order to encourage one another, we will be posting these “gospel stories” after each baptism!
Marshall Cuzick (9th Grade)
When I was younger I went to church mostly every Sunday learning about how God sent His one and only Son to die for our sins. I always believed that I was a Christian because I grew up in a Christian family and I just thought learning about God made you an automatic Christian.
Around 7th grade I kind of saw what being a Christian kind of meant. When I was about 12, I saw what God was doing for a lot of people around me such as my sister and friends, and I kind of understood what it meant to get baptized. In 7th grade I went to a church camp called Crossings Camp. At this camp I learned that I am a sinner and I need God to forgive my sins and save me. I also learned that I need to give my whole life to God and let Him have full control. A verse that helped me with this was Proverbs 3:7, “Do not be wise in your own eyes; fear the Lord and shun evil.”
It wasn’t until the next year at the same church camp where I found my true identity which was through Christ. I will sin, but I will be forgiven. Now I give all the glory to God, and He has full control over my life. I now feel relief that I will live with God in everlasting life.
