I'll kick things off on this page: I accepted Jesus Christ as my personal Lord and Savior in the year 2000. I was prompted to accept Christ after beginning to read the Left Behind book series written by Tim LaHaye and Jerry Jenkins. Accepting Christ was the most natural thing I have ever done. I had believed in God ever since early childhood and had THOUGHT that I was a Christian, but had never put it all together--that Jesus is the only Way, He is the Truth and the Life--until I was awakened early into the first Left Behind book. I am a sinner--we are all sinners--and Christ died on the cross and paid that sin debt in full. Three days later, Christ was raised from the dead by God the Father and lives in heaven at God's right hand as part of the Holy Trinity--the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit lives in all of us who have accepted Christ's gift of merciful salvation.--Jim Yackel, Manlius, NY

I accepted Jesus in November 1991. I had just retired from playing Semi-pro football and I played as an angry man. I went on a men's retreat in Oklahoma that someone paid for me to go to. That night as we were eating dinner, this big fat dude tapped me on the shoulder and asked me for the tea pitcher. I swung around and glared at who had had the nerve to tap me and ask for something. The next day I learned that this person was the keynote speaker. Before he even began teaching, he had people break off into prayer groups and just began praying. He himself buried his face into his hands and began to boo-hoo crying. All of the sudden I knew I was to go speak with him. So I went forward
