Yesterday was a great day for NCC as we witnessed the baptism of 5 people; 4 grown men and my 11-year-old daughter, Keziah. I am going to put all of the testimonies on the site over the next few days but I am starting with Keziah today.

It was amazing listening to the stories of how different men had battled prison, drugs, mental health and family breakdown before the lord Jesus stepped into their lives and saved them. But, for me, as a dad and as a man with a similar testimony to the lads, I was moved by Keziah’s simple claim that she had ‘grown up in a Christian family.’

Wherever I travel in the country people always try to get me to tell my story because, I suspect, they love to hear the (supposed) excitement of it compared to their ‘boring and traditional’ stories. But, let me tell you, I would swap mine for the ‘Christian home’ story all day long. The point is we all need salvation, whether we’re a 40-year-old ex crack addict or an 11-year-old, drama loving school girl. Same sin problem, same wrath, same Jesus, same need of repentance and faith and same justification. The sanctification process is going to look a little messier but we all end up in glory. I hope you all enjoy the testimonies over the next few days.

    ‘It has given me great joy to find some of your children walking in the truth’ (2 John 4). Really wonderful to hear Keziah’s testimony and glad to hear you didn’t kiss all the guys like that 😉

    God bless you and the church Mez

    We were privileged and humbled to witness Keziah’s baptism. We will continue to pray that the Lord will keep her and the 4 ‘lads’ who have made this committment.
