"Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come: The old has gone, the new is here! All this is from God, who reconciled us to himself through Christ and gave us the ministry of reconciliation: that God was reconciling the world to himself in Christ, not counting people’s sins against them. And he has committed to us the message of reconciliation. We are therefore Christ’s ambassadors, as though God were making his appeal through us. We implore you on Christ’s behalf: Be reconciled to God. God made him who had no sin to be sin for us, so that in him we might become the righteousness of God." 2 Corinthians 5:17-21
Fun Fact: Pete is the fourth generation in his family to attend The AG Church in Willmar.
Pete's One-Minute Witness:
"When I was a child my family took me to church every Sunday. I was involved in Sunday school and learned about Jesus and what He did for me. One Sunday morning, the pastor presented the story of Jesus in such a way that, even as a young child, I knew that I needed to accept Jesus’ sacrifice and give my life to Him. As I’ve grown up physically, I have also grown in my relationship with God. He is the most important person in my life. His Word is the lens through which I view the world. I don’t know what my life would look like if I had not decided to follow Jesus, but I know I would be more fearful, more selfish, and a lot less loving if I didn’t have Jesus’ example to follow."
