First Steps

Hello, my name is John and I live in Metropolitan Atlanta. I am 45 years old and a native of Georgia, but would like to move somewhere else one day if God so chooses.

I thought I was saved as a young boy in Colonial Hills Baptist Church in East Point, GA (they have since moved to an outer suburb of Atlanta), but I now have a true understanding of the COMPLETE Gospel of Jesus Christ. That is, I had faith as to my salvation, but I now WALK in faith. I now understand that "works" will not make me more acceptable to the Father, and that I am dead to sin. In a word, I learned about GRACE!

I had served as the Chairman of the Deacons at a small Baptist Church, but my wife and I became completely burned out by all of the activity. God had told us to leave, and we still don't know where.

The last 8 weeks have been an incredible spiritual journey, and I invite you to join me. I look forward to your comments.

You can email me directly at

Grace and Peace to you

When we moved to Dallas, Baptists used to ask us "When were you saved?" My Mom liked to answer: "33 AD."
