Reading a 350 page book on evangelism I have noted that when I accepted Christ at age 5 I did not exactly submit to his Lordship nor did I fully understand sin. I re-dedicated my life to Christ at age 17 and have progressed in my faith and walk with Christ in time and this is called Progressive Sanctification. The author of this 350 page book on evangelism would have referred to me as a False Convert, however authors of other books (even some by Reformed) do not agree. I am not exactly sure if it was age 5 when I got saved, age 17, or later, but I know the doctrine of Perseverance of the saints and the following verses. Perseverance of the saints-God works in those who are truly saved to preserve them in His salvation.) (a) John 10:28 (b) Philippians 1:6 (c) II Timothy 1:12 (KJV) Being confident of this very thing, that he which hath begun a good work in you will perform it until the day of Jesus Christ: I was confused in my Weslyian background. I was also baptized at age 13-14 in that denomination which I believe holds to the essentials of the faith. However there are others that believe the Weslyian/Anabaptist Missionary Church denomination is not teaching the true gospel and I need to get baptized again, but I am convicted I should not do this. Perhaps no one knows for certain when I was saved, but if at age 5 I would be one exception to the sinners prayer.
