Testimonies

One of the most wonderful and inspiring witnesses of the truth of the Gospel is how incredibly it changes our lives.

Nothing in history has ever come close to the miracle of the immediate and eternal change that occurs to a person the moment they have believed the Gospel unto salvation, that is, the moment they have been, as Jesus put it “born again” (John 3:3)

We begin this page in the third year of the history of this Church and aim to provide one testimonial each week of the month that mark our anniversary.

The testimonies found here are not of those who call themselves Christian, but the testimonies of those who actually are true Christians, those who have been evidently affected by the reality of the New Birth, those who have gone from death to life, “quickened” as the Bible refers it, to life everlasting. This is the testimonies of those who have truly received the forgiveness of sin and to whom the judgement that awaits the world, will not come.

These are the testimonials of forgiven and redeemed lives, lives that will never be the same again. Some are young, some are old and many are in-between. Some of the testimonies speak of lives changed from a young age, some who have had the unfortunate experience of coming to Christ later in life.

Some relate to a relatively good life, some of a change from an evil life. ALL HOWEVER speak of their complete transformation and continual change.

the Bible says,

And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what isthat good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.

Romans 12:2

I pray the testimonies below are a blessing and an encouragement to you all.

Saskia

Being Saved Young Does Not Diminish Your Testimony. Saskia’s testimony would encourage many who grew up in Christian homes with similar experiences. She was saved young and shares in both the joy in not ever having to go through the many dangers and ordeals far too many young people experience, but she also shares about the struggles in her walk and what she had come to realise respecting her love for Jesus, most particullalry his love for her.

Chrissie

It all started with a jar of Vegemite Chrissie’s testimony has with it an interestingly unique search motivation for God. The death of her dear brother was but one thing that brought Chrissie to the point of giving up on life and telling God that if he wants her, he can have her. From a somewhat hardened teen, to a full submission to her Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ can take some softening of the heart, one that began after…

David

David’s Testimony Wisdom Missed As a young boy David was introduced to the truth of God. It was a faith that was  encouraged by his grandmother, but wained until he met his new wife. The questions he never thought to ask himself, he began to ask as he tried to do all he could to comfort her. It was a wisdom he once knew, but it was a wisdom missed, missed because life and the things of this world quickly removed…
I Considered Ending My Life

Cody

“I Considered Ending My Life.” I truly don’t think there is any greater crisis of life and demonstration of total despair and desperation than the desire to end ones life. Cody experienced this last October (2018) only a few months before he first walked in the doors of Hope Baptist Church with his brother Wade. His life from that fateful day to this day can only be attributed to the love, grace and mercy of the Lord, who heard Cody’s…
