CBC Salvation Stories - Central Baptist College

CBC Salvation Stories


CBC’s yearbook, the Carillon, included 150 salvation testimonies from students and faculty in its 2018 volume. These personal stories regarding the life-transforming factor of Jesus Christ correlated with the yearbook’s theme, Centralize, and the theme verse, Romans 12:2: “Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that by testing you may discern what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect.” (ESV) 

The testimony below was published in the 2018 Carillon. – Melody Siebenmann, Carillon co-editor

“I’ve always been in church, even while I was in the womb. So my salvation came pretty soon, once I truly realized that even I, a little seven year old kid, was destined for hell. So, long story short, my dad and I were out hitting softballs one day and he asked me if I knew where I was going when I died. I knew immediately that I didn’t. So, I accepted Jesus right then and there.” 

Jessica Sawyer, Current Student  

“I was saved when I was six, but I didn’t really start following God until later. It was a struggle through high school, but God really got a hold of me once I started college at CBC. I made new friends and being in a Christ-centered environment has helped me so much in developing my relationship with God.” 

Bryant Wilson, Current Student 

“When I was a kid, I wanted to make my dad proud and say I was a follower of Christ. However, when I got older, I realized the true meaning of being a Christian – and a true believer. I accepted Christ as my personal savior.” 

Central Baptist College desires to support our student’s decisions to follow Jesus through a supportive but challenging higher education environment. Our faculty, staff and administration have all committed to follow Jesus and desire to nurture our students in this way. As followers of Jesus we are all called to lead others to him. Some in full-time ministry and others in a different career path but all as members of the body of Christ committed to the mission of sharing the Gospel. Our hope is that our student’s hearts are transformed during their time on campus and that they would choose to serve our Almighty God in the profession of their choice once they graduate from Central Baptist College.
