I’ve not been baptized…as a believer.
But, you’re a pastor’s wife?! (And, a Baptist one!)
Let me share with you a bit about my journey.
I grew up Catholic, and was baptized as an infant. I went through First Communion and First Confession and went to Catholic school until I was in 4th grade. After that, my parents moved us to a private Christian school. Around the same time, my mom told me that when we went to my grandmother’s house, to not do “this” anymore, as she motioned a cross from forehead, heart, side to side.
So, then, I became Protestant. I first truly saw my need for Christ in Junior High, and I received salvation by grace, through faith. I graduated from High School, and that summer, after seeds of rebellion had begun to grow, God once again granted me repentance and I began my journey of truly following Christ, in a daily relationship with Him.
That summer I moved across the country to attend Auburn University; with this new life ahead of me, I decided to start taking my faith seriously as the Lord continued to draw me closer and closer to Him. I grew tremendously over the next four years, mainly through my involvement with Campus Crusade for Christ. However, I never found a home church. It took the entire four years for me to get over the culture-shock of moving from Southern California to Bible-Belt Alabama. I didn’t feel comfortable in any church I visited there. I attended church despite this fact, but I never joined a church, and I don’t remember any opportunities given for Baptism. I really never thought about it.
