From: Halifax, NS.
How you trusted Christ and came to the BI: I grew up in a believing home but did not trust Christ until I was 19 years old. It was a dark and stormy night in Toronto when my dad led me to Christ as we were sitting in our car. I had been living on my own for over a year and had reached the point where I had to make a decision about what kind of life I wanted to live.
After returning home, I was visiting a friend’s home and there was a catalog for the Bible Institute sitting on the coffee table. I had been teaching Sunday School and realized that there was so much about the Bible that I did not know. A one-year program sounded perfect for what I was looking for so I applied and attended the BI in 1973-74.
Verse: “For by grace you have been saved through faith; and that not of yourselves, it is the gift of God; not as a result of works, so that no one may boast.” ~Eph 2:8-9
