How I Met Christ: I was in church from the time I was a small child, but never heard the Gospel until I was a teenager. I was trusting my own good works to get me to heaven as I was taught in those early years in church. After I heard the truth from the Bible, I admitted my inability to merit God’s favor on my own and trusted the work that Christ did on the cross.
