The following is my personal testimony presented to our church congregation prior to my Baptism on February 13, 2011:
My name is Glen Beck. I first accepted Jesus Christ into my life back in College. It wasn’t until later in life, however, that a series of events led me to truly make the commitment to walk with Christ as a believer. In other words, it is a testimony to God’s profound love that he took my commitment more seriously than I did.
Like so many believers, it took the storm of tragedy to lead me to a life of faith and to walk with a boldness that only God can provide. My father took his life, I experienced a divorce from an abusive 18 year marriage, was sent to prison, lost the companies I had worked so hard to build and the income required to meet both my business and personal obligations. By earthly standards, I had lost virtually everything that had taken a lifetime to build.
Today, I am blessed with an incredible wife and marriage, a supportive and loving family, and have started a Christian-based business helping to serve various ministries within the local community and throughout the United States. God has blessed my obedience in ways I couldn’t have even begun to imagine a year ago. My life is a living example of God’s promise to us in Romans 8:28, “And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to His purpose.”
My decision to be baptized is just a small facet of my obedience to our Lord. The shear act of appearing in front of an audience this size is difficult to say the least. In some small way, this is my opportunity to thank God publicly for His grace and kindness and, hopefully, compel at least one of you to consider doing the same.
