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

Dillon East, Alum

“I was saved at a young age, but it was not until pretty recently that I have started to fully understand the grace and love of our Savior. That love and grace encourages me to be a better Christian every day.”

Tiffany Thornton, Alum

“I was 8 when I asked Jesus into my heart. I had been attending vacation bible school at my dad and step-mom’s church when I made this decision. One neat thing I treasure about the fact that it happened like this is that Bro. Paul who performed my baptism is one of my dad and step-mom’s best friends and he actually officiated my wedding.”

Bailey McElyea, current student

“I have always attended church. Some of my earliest memories were in the nursery and sanctuary at New Home Baptist Church. My mother made a point to raise me and my sister in church, although she had not been a church-goer before we were born. When I was eight-years-old, I gave my life to Christ at a church camp in Smithville, AR. I hope that my life will radiate the love of Christ.”

Our Mission

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 of us are called as members of the body of Christ. Committed to the mission of sharing the Gospel. Our vision is that our students are challenged, engaged, and inspired academically and spiritually. Ultimately, leading to heart transformation. So that, they will choose to be world changers for our Almighty God by the time they graduate from Central Baptist College.
