Brent Smith

Born Again: March 1963
Place: Pleasant Hill Missionary Baptist Church
Age: 13

His Testimony

I was blessed beyond measure by having Christian parents and grandparents who took me to church even as an infant. I had heard the gospel preached all my life, but God began to convict me of my sins when I accidentally touched the stove. I realized that if the pain from such a small burn was that bad, it would be a terrible torment to die and go to hell and live forever in an eternal flame of fire. Shortly thereafter, at a weekend revival at Pleasant Hill Missionary Baptist Church in Benton County, Tennessee, the weight of condemnation was so great that I fell at the altar and begged God to forgive me of my sins. Suddenly, I felt relief. The burden of sin had been lifted. I was gloriously saved that night in March of 1963 and I know I have an eternal home waiting for me in heaven.


Wanda Smith

Born Again: September 1966
Place: Cowell's Chapel
Methodist Church
Age: 15

Her Testimony

I was saved when I was 15 years old. I do not remember being under conviction until that night, but I was so burdened during the altar call that I knew I had to ask the Lord to forgive me of my sins and save me. I went to the altar and it wasn't long until I felt so very happy and peaceful. I knew I had been saved. I was baptized and joined Cowell's Chapel Methodist Church. Some time later I attended Independent Baptist Church with Brent. I would hear people give their testimonies of salvation and I began wondering about my own experience. I prayed for the Lord to let me know about my salvation. I was always led back to Cowell's Chapel and that glorious feeling I had experienced at the altar. I joined Independent and was baptized in July of 1973.

Ginger Smith Welp

Born Again: June 1995
Place: Independent Missionary
Baptist Church
Age: 14

Her Testimony

I was saved at Independent Baptist Church when I was 14 years old. I had been under conviction for a long time, and had gone to the altar several times. One Wednesday morning during revival, while Brother Trey Crews was preaching, I felt like he was preaching just to me. When the altar call was given, I remember my brother asking me if I knew where I would go when I died. At that very moment, I went to the altar and prayed for the Lord to save me. He did. I know I am saved because I felt a very sweet peace in my heart that I had never felt before. I joined the church and was baptized on Sunday after the revival.

Oh that men would praise the Lord for his goodness, and for his wonderful works to the children of men! Let them exalt him also in the congregation of the people, and praise him in the assembly of the elders." [Psalms 107:31-32]

Brent is the son of Ray and Wilma Smith and has grown up attending Huntingdon (formerly Independent Missionary Baptist Church. He and his wife Wanda have also brought up their children in the church. Their daughter Ginger shares her testimony also. Brent leads congregational singing and is a member of the Victory Quartet.
