Long ago I started going to church for many years and never missed a day. Then one day I just quit going. It took me about 15 years after to reach out to God and ask for forgiveness. I had hit rock bottom. I was lost and I stepped away from God as if he never existed.The world was crashing down around me and I didn't even know the purpose for my life. I felt as if I was in limbo. It seemed like a lifetime I had wasted. I cried my heart out to God and prayed for my life to change. I WAS SAVED!! It started as the worst day of my life and instantly changed to the best day of my life.
My Salvation with Jesus Christ my Savior! Everything in my life started changing drastically. God gave me so much strength. I even tried to go back to the same church I used to attend but i was struggling with that commitment . God knew I needed the guidance. THEN....The Pastor of ABC and all his children showed up at my front door pleading that I go to his church reminding me how amazing it is to have that salvation living in you and through you. It was living in him and his church so evidently. I had forgotten and It was if God sent him to my house on purpose. Pastor Clark invited my family to Aurora Baptist Church and it changed my life forever. Before I went, I didn't have but more than one true friend in my life and my children. Now I have an entire family!!! The pastor mentioned to me that his wife was so excited to meet me.
The day I arrived at the church we were welcomed by everyone. Mrs. Clark introduced herself to me and it was if I had already known her for years. The Church family all acquainted themselves and made me feel like I was finally a part of something huge and glorious. I feel so loved and honored and blessed to be a member of ABC and i will never quit again. The Church and the church family has helped me strengthen my walk with God and strengthened my faith and willingness to participate in the most exciting journey of my life. I am truly blessed because of ABC.
