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)

“When I was younger, I cannot remember a specific time that I prayed the sinner’s prayer and was saved but I have never felt far from Him. I’m thankful that I’ve never had to go looking for God because I’ve never been without him.”

Anna Crocker, Freshman

“I have been raised in a Christian household my while life. My dad has either been a missionary or a pastor for my entire life and my mother shows Gods love in all that she does as a stay at home mom. Needless to say, I’ve always known the Bible stories and who Jesus is, but it wasn’t until I was 9 years old that I grasped the concept of death and how filthy and disgusting my sin was. My dad guided me in prayer and I put my trust in the Lord and he cleansed me and has loved me through it all!”

Lauren Whenrey, Alum

“My testimony can be summed up in one simple statement. ‘God got me through.’ I was raised in a military family where we moved around a lot, and every time I remember feeling a sense of anxiety because I didn’t know anyone, and I was in an entirely new place. Through each move I was always reminded of Jeremiah 29:11 and how God has a plan for me.”

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.
