Assistant Pastor of Children's Ministry

God's Word confronted me with the fact that my greatest need is to deal with my sin problem. When I was nine years old, I told God I was a sinner and received Jesus as Savior and Master of my life. I knew very clearly that my sin was my greatest problem resulting in my greatest need – Christ. How about you? Will you agree with God by admitting that your sin is your greatest problem and that Jesus Christ died on a cross to take your place?
