Testimony of Frank Hilton
This is the testimony of my personal experience (converstion) that I had with Jesus Christ leading up to and on March 6, 1985! This experience was life changing, and I hope you will be inspired by it.

When I was growing up, I developed a life style that was immoral and full of sin. Around the age of 7-8 I became aware of what was right and wrong but could not control my sinful habits. At age 13, I began listening to rock-n-roll. Then around 18 years of age I became bound to drugs, alcohol and guilt. I was a heavy partier and a music lover. I listened to heavy metal rock music which greatly effected me. My mind was totally confused, I had a "mid-evil" mind and I was hungry for spiritual things, but was looking in the wrong places.

Then on a cloudy dark day, while I was all alone in my apartment, I asked God, "If you are real, then get me out of this mess." That is all I said with one tear dropping down my face. I felt in my heart that I wanted to turn my life around. Now, I didn't commit my life to Jesus yet!

After a little while I got involved in a relationship out side of marriage. I thought this was wonderful, I thought this would make me happy. It was going good. I wanted to settle down and quit my partying. Well, then it all ended. It lasted about 1½ years. It was devastating and painful to me. I began to drink alcohol very heavily. I was very unhappy.

I longed to know what life was about. I was witnessed to a few times about Jesus Christ and his deliverance. At first I mocked at it. But God started dealing with me on my sin. I saw how God had changed my friends lives.

Well, I was still sinning and the guilt was tormenting me! So finally, on March 6th, 1985. I was praying at home and told God that I am sick of this world, my drugs and all the pain. I got in my car and headed to the First United Pentecostal Church in Lewiston, Maine. While I was driving down a straight away road, I started crying and pleading with God to forgive me of all my sins. I felt a heavy load of guilt and pain lift off of me. Then I started getting all tingly in my hands and tongue, I started having stammering lips just like the bible speaks of. I just started smiling from ear to ear.

I went to my Christian friends house. I told him what happened to me in the car. The Pastor of the church just happened to call my friend, my friend told him what happened to me. I told my friend that I want to get baptized tonight.

I went to church that night and got baptized in the name of Jesus Christ. After coming out of the water, God filled me with the Holy Ghost and I began to speak in tongues as the bible says.

PRAISE THE LORD! He set me free from all the drugs, alcohol and bad habits the same day! What an experience I had with God! ...and continue to have. Jesus Christ is precious and great too me. I have been living for Jesus ever since that day, and still love His word and going to church. It is the only way to live!

He said unto them, Have ye received the Holy Ghost since ye believed? And they said unto him, We have not so much as heard whether there be any Holy Ghost. And he said unto them, Unto what then were ye baptized? And they said, Unto John's baptism. Then said Paul, John verily baptized with the baptism of repentance, saying unto the people, that they should believe on him which should come after him, that is, on Christ Jesus. When they heard this, they were baptized in the name of the Lord Jesus. And when Paul had laid his hands upon them, the Holy Ghost came on them; and they spake with tongues, and prophesied. (Act 19:2-6)
