Evangellist John TannerEvangelist John Tanner's Testimonial

My name is John Tanner and this is my story. Thank you for taking the time to read this testimony. I am very blessed to do what I do. I have been making a living in the outdoors for a long time and have seen a lot of amazing things while spending time out in Gods creation. I enjoy hunting and fishing and spending time with my family. God has allowed me to use my fishing as a ministry to reach others for Him while guiding and fishing tournaments. I am involved in Men's ministry at my church, Lake Fork Baptist, and my wife and I have spent a great deal of time as part time youth directors there.

Before I met Jesus, I was lost and headed on a downhill crash course. From the worlds stand point it looked like I had it going on. I had a good business making plenty of money and all of the material things that were supposed to bring fulfillment and happiness. But it seemed like to the more I got , the more I wanted. You see, no matter how much I had or how many bass tournaments I won money in or how many big bass I caught, I still felt this empty spot in my heart. I tried to fill it with everything the world had to offer but it just didn’t work. I had gone to church as a young boy. I remembered about Jesus and the things I had learned about Him as a child. How He is all we need, and if we truly surrender our life to Him then He will take care of our every need. You see, I needed peace in my life, and I needed forgiveness for my sins and for sure needed to get saved so I wouldn’t go to hell. Then one night in 96 when I had all I could take and was so miserable that I was about to give up, I cried out to God and asked Him to forgive me of my sins and come into my life and be my Lord and Savior.

My life is different now and I have hope through Christ and that big hole I had in my heart is forever filled with peace. And one things for sure, I know where I am headed when I take my last breath on this earth. The question is, do you? Well you can. The Bible says in John 3:16 “For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten son and whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have eternal life”. If you are living a life of uncertainty as far as your spiritual condition, and need to know for sure that you will go to heaven when you die, then the decision is yours. It is the biggest decision you will ever make in your life. Give your life to Christ and accept the free gift of salvation He offers. Jesus died on the cross for our sins, making a way and the only way to get to heaven. Will you accept Him today? If you would like to pray to receive Jesus and get saved call 903-569-7451.
