Free From Deception

By Shipei (Jasmine) Chong

Personal note: Do you ever hate your life? I do, and I hate it for more than ¾ of my life; it was only when I was born again that I began to appreciate my life. The joy of God’s love replaces my empty feeling with a sense of purpose. Isn’t it great that God…

God’s Revelation

By Francois Bergeron

Since I was young, I always loved God. I was raised a Catholic, I was taught about God’s Word, but never understood the full meaning of it. I remember when I was young, I went to a service and I found it boring (I saw no life in it), then I thought about those black…

My Life-Changing Testimony

By Chris Foran

I was raised in a nominal Christian home which means that I attended church on a weekly basis. I was provided with a relatively safe environment – I never went without food or clothing.

My Personal Salvation Story

My Personal Salvation Story

By Yuen Cheng

I was raised in a traditional Chinese family with a Christian Mother.

My Personal Salvation Testimony

By Scott Hurd

I used to feel reluctant to share my testimony because I didn’t think it was particularly interesting or relevant to others.

My Personal Salvation Testimony

By Ed Bons

God got a hold of my life about 30 years ago. It was during the Jesus People revolution and a lot of young people were looking for meaning to life. I was one of them. I looked in many places and ultimately thought the meaning rested in the use of drugs. I even remember the…

My Personal Salvation Testimony

By Gilbert Nigh

I was brought up going to a mainline church with my family. We attended faithfully, but it never really had any impact on me. The main objective seemed to be enduring through to the end of the hour and about all I got out of 12 years in Sunday School was knowing the names of…

My Personal Salvation Testimony

By Ruth McMillan Mayfield

“The Word of God is quick and powerful and sharper than any two-edged sword; piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.” (Hebrews 4:12) I was brought up Roman Catholic but my parents were not…

My Personal Story

By Billy Mack

My Personal Testimony

By Angela Whitehead

As a child I recall getting on my knees every night as my mother would pray with me. I also recall childhood memories due to circumstances and experiences which left me feeling hurt, rejected and unloved. I grew up with a poor self-esteem, feeling that I had to win the approval of others. I realize…

My Personal Testimony

By Catherine Boivin

— Given at my Water Baptism, September 1996 — I had first become a Christian about 17 years ago due to my Mom and Dad’s faithful prayers and spiritual guidance. But once I married and our family expanded there no longer seemed to be time for the Lord. I still belonged to the Catholic Church…

My Personal Testimony

I was a child raised in a nominally Christian home in Fredericton, New Brunswick, Canada.

My Personal Testimony

I was born on March 17, 1966. My parents are and were Christians before I was born. My mother came to the Lord in the 50’s and during that time it was very hard to be a Protestant in Chile, a country governed by the Catholic Church. Protestants were persecuted and discriminated by Catholic Church…

My Salvation Story

By Graham Bishop

Before becoming a Christian, I used to think that ‘heaven’ was some place in another dimension somewhere, that you automatically got zapped into when you die! I wasn’t an atheist, but on the other hand I wasn’t a Christian either. At the time, I was very much into Science Fiction and got hooked on the…

My Salvation Testimony

By Doug Spencer

I became a Christian at the age of 9 years. God has been so very faithful to me since that wonderful moment. I wish that I had been as responsible during all of these years, but even so His grace and mercy have always been so perfect. There are a million or more facets to…

My Salvation Testimony

By Sophie Bunce

“Give thanks to the Lord for He is good. His lovingkindness endures forever.” I was brought up in the Methodist church but never remember hearing the gospel until I was twelve years old.

My Story

By Krinda Allen

As a child, I slept with covers over my head, fearing what lay in wait for me in the dark. This was no childhood fear of monsters under the bed or witches in the closet. This was mortal terror for what I knew first hand was out there. In my family, the demons were not…

My Story

By Jack Donnelly

My testimony wouldn’t be complete without some background history so let me begin back in the 1980 time frame. I was employed by GTE when I attended a Billy Graham Crusade in Tampa Florida. Several of my employees had been witnessing to me and loaning me tapes but I rarely listened to them. I had…

My Story

By William Minall

It was 1965 when I met the girl of my life, my wife Bette. She was a Christian, but I was not. We met while directing a play for a children’s theatre group. Although I was lost in sin, I knew there was something missing, something that I could not fill no matter how hard…

My Story

By Joyce Lindsey

I acknowledged our Lord and Savior 8 years ago at the age of 47. I was very pig-headed about this at first, and it is interesting to see how the Lord does work through people in your life. My sister came to live with me after both my sons left home, so I was by…

My Story

By Susan Strutz

My Story

By Peggy Curl

There was once a time when I did a lot of run’in and gun’in, doing things that today I’m not so proud of. On top of it all I added drugs and alcohol to my madness. I remember one day walking past the bathroom mirror and not even recognizing the person looking back at me.…

My Story

By Sharon Ellington

I was raised above two bars, Rathskillers and the Clipper. My mother held down two jobs to support us and never went on welfare. If cleanliness is next to Godliness, then our home missed the mark. Mealtimes, bedtimes, and structure were not present in my life. I didn’t learn the value of brushing my teeth,…

My Story

By Lon Wong

I accepted Christ when I was 16 years old. I came from a non-Christian family and for some reason, in grade 10, I decided to check out a church. I was your typical everyday nice guy. School was never a problem for me, I had awesome friends, no real financial concerns, and all the freedom…

My Testimony

By George Nazar

I hope this testimony gives glory to God and shows what the Lord can do with a yielded heart. Rejection expresses itself in many different ways; some people turn on themselves, feel they are useless, worthless and not good for anything – and in extreme cases, commit suicide. Some become aggressive and take it out…

My Testimony

By Linda Adams

I grew up in a house with an alcoholic father. I learned when I was older that it is very common for children of alcoholics to try to become as invisible as possible, which I did for many years. He was also abusive, and for one reason or another so was my mother. My father…

My Testimony

By Jason Dalnoki

My grade two teacher used to tell our class about God’s love and how we were all brothers and sisters, yet he was physically abusing me. The abuses that he gave me made me think this was God’s way of telling me he loved me. I wanted nothing to do with God because of this.…

My Testimony

By Monty Hardy

I grew up on a farm and enjoyed working on the farm. We went to a rural, traditional, dead church. We went to church when Mom and Dad felt like going. I remember Dad always giving me and Mom a dollar to put in the offering plate as it went by. I learned very little…

My Testimony

By Craig Cole

I was raised in a church-going family. However, religion to me was Sunday morning at church only and it was never brought home. My parents also let their children be rather autonomous. So at age twelve, I decided that church was not for me and I opted out from going on Sundays. I attended public…

Personal Testimony

By Rev. George A. Desjardins

Praise the Lord For Being My Everything

By Ellen Harlow

Sometimes You’ve Got To Do What You’ve Got To Do

By Danny Parkes

A friend told me this true story. In terms of his Christian faith, he himself is not of a charismatic persuasion, but four individuals working with him are. These four individuals, ‘all of a sudden’ started ‘hammering’ this one fellow within this person’s group with the gospel. Books, notes, messages, tracts, and ‘unceasing spoken words’…
