Matt Sanderson

Matt was baptized at FBCTLH on Sunday, October 27.

I grew up going to church, but never really knew why I was going or what it really meant to be a Christian.  When my family stopped going to church, and my already bad family situation got worse, I didn’t know how to handle it.

I spent years of my life living for me.  I barely even believed there was a God. My family situation was one of abuse, coldness, and resentment. I moved away and thought I had left all my problems behind me.

In my life I have lied, cheated, stolen, used people, and have hurt many people who have tried to love me. After moving to Tallahassee, I returned to church again, but I continued to do the same selfish things and my life only got worse.  It wasn’t until after attempting to end my life that I decided to give everything to God.

I finally returned to the Father I have, and believed that He could make all things new and save my life.  So, I publicly proclaim that Jesus is my Savior and without Him, I wouldn’t be here today.
