Introduction

This course has taught me what it really means to be a Christian. I must admit I was not born into a Christian home, as I got older I started to learn about God and Jesus Christ.

As a young Christian woman I am tempted everyday to stir away from the things that I pray and ask for. Forgiveness, to be saved, to have eternal life with God. God hears my prayers, as a Christian I try to live right. This brings me to that in order to claim to be a Christian it does matter how you live your life, it will all be reflected back in your after life.

What can your local church do to better
