    So I am getting baptized tomorrow and I need some help? Right before I get dunked I am supposed to share my personal testimony, and I am having a leeetle trouble with it. I am not great at public speaking and kinda have social anxiety, and I am THE ONLY ONE getting baptized so I am more than a little nervous and don't really know how to do this. I am afraid of saying too much, or of saying too little, and could really use some advice?

    Focus on Jesus and what He means to you washing away your sin. Then whatever you say or do you will be a good testimony of His love over you. If you look at yourself then it will be hardest thing ever talking in front of so many people.

    Keep your eyes on Jesus and speak out of a grace loving heart and you be fine.

    Just plug your nose, run toward toward the tank and yell cannonball!

    You don't have to say much. Tell them you love Jesus and want to be obedient by following His command to be baptized. Then tell the Pastor you're ready.

    Yours in the Lord,

    The scripture says, "Bring forth therefore fruits worthy of repentance..." (in effect, says that Water Baptism would do them no good unless there had first been Repentance, and if there was true Repentance, fruits would be evident). Luke 3:8
