94-Year-Old Woman gets Baptized and wants others to know ‘It’s Never too Late to Become a Christian’

A 94-year-old Ophelia White was baptized recently and wants wants others to know that it is never too late to accept Christ.

White had thought she was a Christian for many years, but when her roommate, Joy Campbell, told her about the gospel, Ophelia realized she never had a personal relationship with Christ.

“I want people to know it’s never too late [to be a Christian]. Get with it,” White told the congregation who were there to witness her baptism.

“It’s inspiring to people, particularly for senior adults, to know that God is still touching hearts even in the elderly years,” said Pastor Todd Free of Cook Baptist Church in Ruston, Louisiana who baptized Ophelia. “There are many others like Mrs. White who went their whole life thinking they knew Christ but understood later their need for Him.”

“I’m praying we have others in our congregation who have a similar story will have the courage to do as Mrs. White,” the Pastor continued. “We see her testimony as a gift from God to our church and are grateful He allowed us to be a part of this.”

Joy Campbell’s husband, Henry, had a similar story. He had been a deacon at the church, but realized that he never has a personal relationship with Christ. He was saved at 64-years-old.

Joy said her friend Ophelia is a living testimony “that it’s never too late to become a Christian and that you should never give up on a person. It takes time, a lot of time.”

Having a personal relationship with Christ is the most important thing you can ever have. If you’re you believe you are a Christian but do not have that personal relationship, please take the steps to have one.

If you want that personal relationship with Jesus, it can star today by praying:

Dear Lord Jesus, I know that I am a sinner, and I ask for Your forgiveness. I believe You died for my sins and rose from the dead. I turn from my sins and invite You to come into my heart and life. I want to trust and follow You as my Lord and Savior. I want a personal relationship with you.

In Your Name I pray. Amen
