I became "born again" through Christ.....as in Baptism, as a bible reader and believer in Christ and His word, the Bible

What do you people believe about Jesus? This question is perhaps the most crucial decision that a person can make, believing in and deciding to follow Jesus--or not. During the first 16 years of my life, I attended church with my mom, sang in the junior choir until my voice changed, and...
