“My testimony is simple,” says Calvin. “I was raised with a Christian background, but as I went to college, I wandered away. There were many religious influences that tried to grab my attention. I had Muslims and Buddhists trying to share their views about God with me. I was attracted to the moral aspects of these religions, and I also desired to find a way to make peace between people of different faiths. When Pastor John, CCN Campus Leader, and Jake, a CCN member, came around from Change Collegian Network (CCN), I was never offended when they shared the Gospel with me; I always took it to heart. I tried to apply everything they taught me, and that included attending church, as well as seeking to study the Bible. Then, something happened in September of 2011. I attended homecoming with a group of my friends and all of the godly things that I was attempting to live by, went out the window. I laid in bed that night fighting with myself about whether I should get up and go to church, or sleep off the prior night’s activities. I chose to attend Pastor John's church, and during our time of praying and sharing, I tried to express myself, but I couldn’t. I went silent for a while and put my head in my hands and cried out to God to save me. I realized at this point that my deeds would not save me, but what Christ had done for me. It was only His righteousness that could make me right. Now, out of gratitude, I want to be more like Him.”
-From Calvin's Baptism Testimony
"Calvin is our dear brother in Christ through the preaching of the Word. He has believed on the Lord Jesus alone for salvation, and he has shown evidence of his conversion. His life has been changed, and he has handed his priorities over to the Lord. One of the best testimonies I’ve heard is not from Calvin, but from the lips of his roommate, William. William has testified of how he has seen a change in Calvin, and how Calvin has helped him to consider his own walk with Christ. It is not because of something that Calvin has done for himself, but rather he has turned his life over to God, trusting in Christ alone, and submitting to the direction of the Holy Spirit. Calvin continues to attend the CCN fellowship at SMSU, and will be attending our upcoming Leadership Summit as well as Repent and Witness Evangelism Camp this August 2012. Please pray for him as these new experiences will prepare him to go back on the campus in September to sow into others."
