Personal Beliefs Positions

1. When and how did you become a Christian?

Jim Olsen: "When I was 20 years old, my aunt was near death. Our family went to South Carolina to visit the family. The Lord had been convicting me of my sin. I saw a tract called, "What must I do to be saved?" by John R. Rice. This was at 4:00 AM. I took the tract, went to our car, and prayed as sincerely as I knew how to repent of my sins and trust Jesus. The next morning, the whole world looked different to me! I felt clean and new. That was 38 years ago and I can say that the Lord has been good to me."
