OUR STORIES

Below is a list of people from different cultures, countries, religions and backgrounds. We all have one thing in common; we have trusted in Jesus Christ and have experienced His gift of salvation. We are now brothers and sisters in Christ and we are thankful that you have taken the time to read about how we each became Christians.
