Why I became a member of the Church of Christ

Posted by Brittany at 2:06 PM



Everyone has a story and some are extremely funny about why they are a member of the Church of Christ. Mine is relatively short since my father is a preacher and at 11 I walked into the dining and announced I need to be baptized, because I could go to hell. Some people are like me and start off with a fear of hell others were baptized because of spouses or friends. Why are you a member of the Church of Christ?

Honestly, I became a member out of fear of hell as well. It was around the time that people were like, "The world is coming to an end!" I was so scared, and didn't know what to believe. Oh how naive I was. . . So, just to be sure and ready, I went ahead and got baptized. I knew that I needed to believe, confess, be baptized, and live a righteous life in order to go to heaven, and let's just say that the technology scare helped me get into action. LOL I'm glad that I made that decision, and now that I'm older, I am truly learning how to live a virtuous life.

That's wonderful Andrea I believe the fear of hell is many people's deciding factor on whether or not to be baptized. But like you said hopefully our fear of hell turns into love for God. Thanks for the comment!
