The Testimony of David Hill
I was blessed to be raised in a Godly home. As an infant, my family attended a Baptist Church in Sylmar, CA and later began attending a Baptist Church in Newhall, CA, where I continued until moving to Ridgecrest after college. Shortly after moving to Ridgecrest, I began attending Immanuel Baptist Church, where I would eventually meet my wife Rhonda, and begin the raising of our family. Because of the Lord’s leading, we left Immanuel and attended the Base Chapel for a couple of years. Throughout this time, we remained in contact with families of Ridgecrest Reformed Baptist Church (RRBC), and soon felt the Lord’s leading to begin attending RRBC.
As a young child, through the teaching of the Bible in Sunday school and devotions with my parents, I realized that I was a sinner and in need of a Savior. One evening after questioning my mother about what it meant to be a Christian, she led me through the “Sinner’s Prayer” committing my life to Him. I continued attending church and was baptized as a teenager. In looking back on my spiritual growth, I realize that I was in a state of comfort and immaturity. Once attending RRBC, I was introduced to many biblical concepts that were new to me. Through the hearing of the Word preached, Bible reading, other spiritual reading material, and much prayer, these concepts began to make sense. I believe that I was converted as a child, and that God continues to work in my life as a believer in Him.
