My name is Ray Corrin. I was born in Liverpool and was raised in a catholic family and I attended a catholic church with family members whilst growing up.
After leaving school I grew out of going to church as it seemed pointless for me as I was profoundly deaf and I could not hear anything being said from the pulpit.
For years I spent much of my time doing various things and attending a centre for the disabled before I finally decided to go to college and learn new skills. It was while I was attending the college that I met Pat, who was already a Christian. Pat invited me to come to Dovecot Church, which I accepted. The service and church itself was completely different from the Catholic one I had attended with my family so it was a bit of a surprise, but I enjoyed it and started to go regularly.
As a catholic I thought I would be okay as you can go to confession and confess your sins, and just be a good lad and keep out of trouble. But after reading through the four Gospels I came to realise that being good and doing good would not save you. I asked Pat what I needed to do to become a Christian, and she suggested I speak to someone in the church, which I did. After realising I needed to ask God for forgiveness and to become my Saviour I became a Christian that year in 1991. I was also baptised in December of that same year.
Reading Gods Word, opened up a better light of understanding about Gods grace and gift of salvation and the reason Jesus, suffered and died on the cross for me.
Life as a Christian still has its struggles and ups and downs, but we have the Lord walking with us and His grace will one day see us home to Heaven.
Listen to Ray as he talks
about what God means to him.
“And the Lord, He is the One who goes before you. He will be with you, He will not leave you nor forsake you; do not fear nor be dismayed.”
