Personal Testimonies

Only a Christian can give a Christian testimony, and a Christian is one who has received forgiveness
for sin by trusting alone in the person and work of Jesus Christ for that forgiveness.
A Christian testimony is given when Christians relate how we came to know the God of the Bible
through the moving of the Holy Spirit in our hearts. Most commonly, we are sharing how we became
Christians by God’s miraculous intervention and work in our lives through specific events. Often we can
only see that in hindsight, but sharing that experience is vital. Also, when giving this testimony, a sharing of
the Gospel of Jesus Christ is always a necessity. Though we can include specific information about
how we came to accept Christ as Savior, those details should not be the focus of the testimony.
The focus should be about the death, burial and resurrection of Christ.
