Baptism Date

29 October 2023

I was a Buddhist before I found my faith. There were many times in my life when I questioned everything. Unsure if God was real. I always felt lost. Somehow, God worked in my life to bring me to Him. He drew me to Him by having hip surgery, through friends who are followers of Jesus Christ. I chose to believe that Christianity is true, and I wanted a God that would love me and never forget me. When I heard what Jesus had done, I began to follow Him and received His forgiveness. My life is now transformed. I have a purpose and joy that I never had before. Now I no longer feel lost, I feel found because I found a God who would die for me. I want to declare my faith and my commitment to Jesus Christ.


I also want to acknowledge my family members, PJEFC, my Puchong CG, my 4321 and those who have helped make this day extra special.

Bible Verse
Although he was a son, he learned obedience through what he suffered. And being made perfect, he became the source of eternal salvation to all who obey him…
~ Hebrews 5:8-9

“Can I pray for you?” I didn’t think I needed God, but these simple yet powerful words, offered by many, shaped my faith journey. Through countless prayers, eight weeks of Alpha, many nights of reading the Bible (often finding more questions than answers), and saying the Lord’s prayer 10,000 km away from home, I’ve experienced the profound presence of Jesus in my life. A year ago, I shared my New Year’s resolution at CG retreat: to walk humbly before my God. The past year taught me what it truly means to walk, to walk humbly, and to do so before our Lord. Through the valleys of pain and the peaks of joy and everything in between, His unwavering presence sustains me. My limits free me to depend on His limitless grace, and His glory is made great in my weakness.

Bible Verse
 Now faith is confidence in what we hope for and assurance about what we do not see.
~ Hebrews 11:1

My first acquaintance with Jesus was in Standard 4 when studying in a Catholic Mission School in Brunei 1970. 


During my days in school, I participated in two Youth Camps in Miri, Sarawak. As I grew into adulthood and had an opportunity to go overseas to study and to work, I gradually distanced myself from my Christian fellowship. 


I was married before, however it was very difficult for both of us. It did not work out and I decided to return to Malaysia. Due to my mother’s influence, I became a staunch Buddhist. I attended some Dharma classes, and joined in various Buddhist Festivals and participated in Buddhist rites. 


However, God has never deserted and never left me. God has always kept me in the fellowship of His children. These friends are very patient with me and accepted me in spite of my rebellion to their Jesus.


One of my Christian friends invited me to attend an Alpha Course in PJEFC. God’s spirit was so quick to act on me even immediately after my introductory Alpha Course. The Spirit of God stirred up a strong desire in me to take the first step of faith. 


On the 7th of July 2023, I accepted Jesus Christ as my Lord and Saviour. I also requested pastors from PJEFC to do a spiritual cleansing for my house and I removed all the idols left by my mother who sadly passed away December 2019.


I continued  to complete the Alpha Course that lasted for more than 10 weeks and had a personal encounter with the Holy Spirit at the Weekend Away. After the Alpha Course, I also continued with the New Believers Class. 


Since I became a child of God, I find it so much joy to attend the Sunday worship and in the fellowship with other brothers and sisters in Christ. 


I have made the decision to be baptized because I want to obey God’s commandment and to publicly declare to all my friends and relatives that I am now a child of God.


I will journey on no matter how difficult it is to live for Jesus. I pray that, with my fellow believers cheering me on, I will finish my race and be counted worthy by my Heavenly Father.

Bible Verse
And calling the crowd to him with his disciples, he said to them, “If anyone would come after me, let him deny himself and take up his cross and follow me. For whoever would save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for my sake and the gospel’s will save it.
~ Mark 8:34-35

Some time back I read about Philip and the official. He asked “What’s stopping me from being baptized?” I thought about it and realized that for me, nothing really was.


Besides, where else could I find such great love other than in Jesus? I’m still in awe of what He did for us at Calvary. I think it’s a shame for those who’ve never got to hear of this grace and I want to tell others about Him.

Bible Verse
For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith—and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God— not by works, so that no one can boast.

~ Ephesians 2:8-9

Growing up in Sunday school, my favourite worship song was ‘You Are My All in All’. The lyrics are simple words with big meanings. Now, I am seeking for God to lead me to such big meanings — for God to be my biggest meaning, for my faith in Him to be the foundation under everything that makes life worth living. I want my faith in Him to be so real and true that it leads me to actions. Personally, getting baptised is one of these actions. 


Being a child of God is the best thing to ever happen to me. I accept God into my heart to lead me for all of my days, even ones where I stray. I run into the Lord’s arms, into His grace and love and I stay.

Bible Verse
For this, my son was dead, and is alive again; he was lost, and is found. And they began to be merry.

~ Luke 19:10

I grew up in a Christian family and have attended church regularly every week since I was young. However, I always felt going to church seemed more of a habit. I always thought I wasn’t ready for baptism. And as I grew older, I felt discouraged as I watched my friend getting baptized one by one, while I felt that God wasn’t helping me whenever I needed help and assurance. Recently as I finished my SPM, I continued to grow closer to God by doing my devotion and serving in church ministries. From these experiences, I knew that God was keeping me on the right track. He always has a plan for me. With a heart full of gratitude, I am convicted to learn about the Lord and serve Him for the rest of my life. So when I heard that the date for baptism was approaching, I immediately had the thought of signing up because I wanted to surrender my life to Him and start afresh in my journey in following Him.
