For they all saw him, and were troubled. and immediately he talked with them, and saith unto them, Be of good cheer: it is I; be not afraid.
Stephen’s Salvation Testimony:
Stephen was saved in 1976 at the start of his last year of high school. Some Baptist friends had witnessed to him for months and years. The Holy Spirit took the Word of God and convicted him of his sin and his need of Christ. Upon realizing it, he confessed both and received Him. His interests changed. His activities were now centered on Christ and through His church. In his first year of college, he cut all ties to his parents’ Lutheran church and some time later was baptized again, this time as a believer. During college, his activities were independent of the church he attended at the time except for the 3 months he worked at a church Bible camp.
