The Raisley Family – New Members
written by Alvin Martinez on the topic of New Member Spotlight on October, 2012
Terry and Joni Raisley
Terry – July 26, 1990
Joni – May 6, 1990
A co-worker invited us to church at Liberty Baptist Church in Wichita Falls, Texas. We told them we knew we were saved, even though we weren’t. After many month of preaching, the Holy Spirit convicted us of our need to accept Christ as our personal Lord and Savior. My wife went forward in May of 1990. It took me two more months to finally give up my pride and make Him my Savior.
Joni was baptized on May 6, 1990, and Terry was baptized on July 29 of the same year.
