Although, I was born in a Hindu family, Christ was familiar to us as someone who answers prayers. When I was 12 years old, my mother fell terribly sick and I desperately cried to Christ for help and He answered my prayer. She got well and my faith in Christ grew. Out of my gratitude, I started going to church.
After my education, I joined Infosys as a trainee in Bhubaneswar. My roommate introduced me to a church there which connected me to a church in Mysore, where I was placed after my training. Cross Cultured Church is this church where I came to profess my faith as a Christian. It is this church in which I grew as a believer, where I got baptized and where I currently fellowship.
Today, I am a born again believer. I believe justification by faith alone in Jesus Christ. I believe in the Trinity. I believe our mission on earth is to preach His Word to people who are in darkness. None of my good deeds would please God or earn me salvation. Only my faith in Christ will give me eternal life.
I also have come to understand that there is no such thing as a private Christian. We are here to worship God as a community, to equip one another in the body of Christ and love one another as Christ loves us. We serve God together with His saints through a local church.
