If you have attended the Adoption Class (or plan to), then you may use this online form to indicate your desire to be adopted by Christ Fellowship.
***You may write your testimony in any form you choose, but some find it easier to write their story of grace by breaking down their testimony into the following three stages:
1. BEFORE YOU KNEW CHRIST
Describe your value system, motivations and lifestyle prior to your conversion. Identify the events and the circumstances leading up to your faith in Jesus. In some cases, this process may have taken place over a long period of time. In other cases, you may not remember a day when you did not trust Jesus.
2. CIRCUMSTANCES SURROUNDING YOUR CONVERSION
Please include the specific steps involved in your becoming a Christian and why you believe that you have eternal life. As much as possible, try to avoid religious terminology or church clichés (“born again”, “asked Jesus into my heart”, “washed in the blood”, etc.), as this will prepare you to communicate your story more clearly and authentically to your friends.
3. HOW YOUR LIFE HAS CHANGED AS A RESULT OF BEING A NEW CREATURE IN CHRIST
Describe the difference that Christ has made in your thinking, motivation, values and actions. For some this may be a dramatic change from the “before” description. For others who accepted Christ at an early age, this step will allow you to think through and describe how your life is different than what it could have been and to describe the transformation that is continuing to take place in your life. In either case, please state what assurances you have of forgiveness and eternal life.
We look forward to reading your story and also hope that you will take the time to share it with someone else who may not know the truth of the Gospel. We understand that this may be the first time you have ever written out your testimony. It can be a challenging task.
