On Friday 29th January 1999, at the age of 22, I repented and was baptised by full immersion unto the remission of sins. I received the Holy Spirit with the bible evidence of speaking in tongues (an unknown pure language which God gives to communicate directly with Him) which Jesus promises to everyone who asks just like the first Christians did 2000 years ago. I have been an active member of the Revival Fellowship ever since.
Prior to that I had been baptised in the Greek Orthodox Church when I was little, as is their custom, and brought up to believe in God. However, as I was so young it was not a believer’s baptism. In fact, I do not remember the day it happened. Also, I did not have a personal relationship with God and didn’t see any miracles there. I supposedly had the Holy Spirit but there was no power or change in my life.
