Christopher and Amanda Koch

Home mission shares important message

Christopher Koch (pictured left), a member of Living Shepherd, Laramie, Wyo., told his story of faith in Forward in Christ's August "Confessions of faith." Koch explains how he met with Living Shepherd's pastor, Adam Lambrecht (pictured right), for Bible information classes. Koch notes, "Talking to Pastor Adam made me feel at ease. After the first class, I thought, Yeah, okay, I can do this. The more we talked, the more I realized this is certainly bona fide. The focus is on God's Word: This is what God says, and this is what we are going to try to do."

Koch also explains that when he realized that Jesus has already paid the debt for his sins, the weight of those sins came off. "I don't have to burden myself with that anymore," he says.
