1. When and how did you become a Christian?

Fred Costello: "I was raised in a Christian home and was baptized when I was 8 years old."

2. How did becoming Christian change you?

Fred Costello: "I can’t say that I remember being changed at 8 years old. But I am grateful to know Jesus and that it is by His Grace that I am/we are saved. I can’t imagine going through life without knowing Him, without having His peace and His plan of salvation."

3. How would you describe your relationship with Jesus today?

10. Which gift(s) has the Holy Spirit given to you and what fruit(s) have they borne?

Fred Costello: "Tough question ... Faith, kindness, giving/generosity, and serving/leadership. I hope others would say that my life has demonstrated my faith and kindness to others and encouraged them to grow their faith and increase their kindness to others. I am known to be generous and was honored by Halifax Urban Ministries as the “Humanitarian of the Year.” And I hope my public service (8 years as Mayor of Ormond Beach and 4 years as a State Representative) has been a fruit of my gifts of servant leadership."
