Tessa Leensvaart was baptized on November 27, 2016 in front of her parent’s church family. Following is her confession of faith in Christ. We pray that you are as encouraged as we are to see the continuing to prove Himself faithful and good.
“My name is Tessa and I’m getting baptized because I want you to know what Jesus has done for me. Jesus died on the cross for my sins so I don’t have to die forever. I know I need Jesus because I am a sinner and I know I am a sinner because I lie and sometimes I think bad things about my sisters. When I sin, I know I can ask for forgiveness from God and from others.
One of my favorite bible verses is found in Proverbs 3:5-8 and it goes like this ‘Trust in the Lord with all your heart and do not lean on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge him and he will make your path straight. Be not wise in your own eyes; fear the Lord and turn away from evil. It will be healing to your flesh and refreshment to your bones'”
