The Baptism Testimony of Samuel Gatewood

August 09, 2023

I grew up learningabout the gospel but didn’t completely understand it. I Ioved God, but was compelled by earthly things and activities. When I was younger I didn’t completely understand, but now I’m thinking more deeply about my faith. I understand now that I’m a sinner, and that my sin separates me from God. I know that I deserve death and punishment, but Jesus took my punishment away by his death.

Now I have the Holy Spirit to help me bear fruit and spread the gospel.

I first thought of getting baptized at the end of one of Pastor Jarvis’s sermons when he brought up the gospel. I started thinking more deeply and realized I wanted to get baptized. I realized I believed the gospel instead of just knowing it.

Now I feel more empowered by God. I still face struggles but they are easier to work through, with God’s help.
