I accepted Christ into my heart about 3 years ago after attending Starting Point and fully understanding what Jesus did for us on the cross. Even after becoming a believer, I hadn’t felt completely ‘worthy’ of His love or of baptism — I still do and say things that are ‘unchristian’ and a criticism I had with religion until recently was that Christians can be hypocritical and I did not want to be seen that way.
What I have come to realize through the amazing people and community of believers I have met at Crossroads is that it is not my worthiness that makes me a great candidate for baptism, but my unworthiness. I recently heard it said that you can have faith without trust, but you cannot have trust without faith. This is a proclamation of what Jesus did for me, through grace, and a proclamation of me moving from just faith to faith with trust. It’s not about me and my worthiness, but about the amazing things that God has done and continues to do in my life and the lives of those around me.
