Jin-In Park (Baptism)

My name is Jin-In park. I grew up in the church and I have attended Young Nak since I was a young child. I was raised in a Christian household. All the values that I learned from my parents were from a Christian background. My life was very blessed. I was blessed with much more then I needed. I attended church every Sunday and I never really questioned my parents, why we go to church, and I never was opposed to it.

In the early stages of my life I went to Bible studies, I did quiet times (QTs), I finished a Bible plan with my family and I went to every church retreat. I even went on several mission trips with my parents. I sat in on sermons and I listened to the pastor with attentiveness. These are all activities and actions in which I participated and which I never gave any thought; I just naturally assumed that I was a Christian. However, I don’t think my faith was genuine in the early days of my life.

Liana Li (Confirmation)

Before coming to Christ, I felt unanchored and adrift, always searching for some revelation, truth for my purpose here on earth. It was like being stranded in the middle of the ocean, desperately searching for land, but only relying on myself to get there. As a child, raised Catholic, I was brought up learning about all the facts of the beliefs, but there were always uncertainties, doubts and questions I wanted answered. Hence, I desperately tried to seek them out, but by only listened to my own desires and I only lived life the way I wanted to. I hadn’t fully accepted God and Jesus Christ into my life and many times rejected Him.

Until one day, I felt the conviction of my sins. Then, everything dawned on me and I felt a sense of relief and joy all at the same time. I realized that I had been rejecting God and Christ this whole time when I thought I had accepted them. It was after I had moved to teach in China, away from my family and friends. I was excited to begin a new journey of my life and to learn more about my historic and cultural roots, but then I started to feel homesick and a bit out of place in the first year. Then, during one of the educational workshops, there sparked a sudden change in my heart. I realized what I missed wasn’t just my family and friends, it was God. In the midst of feeling alone, I realized I had been struggling with my biggest sin of all, denying my relationship with Jesus Christ – God.
