Welcome to Lima First Assembly of God. In this community and society, faith and beliefs hold immense importance. We believe in empowering individuals to overcome their fears and experience the transformative power of the Lord. In this inspiring story, Andrea Troyer shares her personal journey of how the Lord helped her conquer her fear and find the courage to get baptized.

Andrea's Story

Andrea Troyer, a member of our congregation, had always felt a deep spiritual connection with God. However, like many others, she carried a fear within her heart that prevented her from taking the significant step of baptism. This fear kept her from fully experiencing the blessings and the closeness with the Lord that come with publicly declaring her commitment to Him.

Overcoming Fear

Andrea's journey to overcoming fear began when she actively sought guidance from our compassionate community at Lima First Assembly of God. Through prayer, fellowship, and support, she discovered that she was not alone in her fears. Many others had faced similar feelings of trepidation before their own baptism.

The close-knit community helped Andrea understand that fear is a natural part of the human experience. They reassured her that the Lord's love is stronger than any fear and that He is always by her side, ready to provide the strength she needed to overcome it.

Discovering Courage

As Andrea continued her spiritual journey, she became more immersed in the teachings of our church and deepened her relationship with the Lord. She found solace in reading the scriptures, attending Bible studies, and engaging in heartfelt conversations with fellow believers.

The teachings she received at Lima First Assembly of God reminded her that baptism symbolizes not just a personal commitment to Christ but also a triumphant declaration of the power of faith. Through these teachings, Andrea discovered that her fear was standing in the way of fully embracing her faith and sharing her love for the Lord with others.

Supportive Community

With the supportive community of believers alongside her, Andrea made the decision to confront her fear head-on. She found strength in their collective prayers, words of encouragement, and the uplifting atmosphere of our church.

Through their unwavering support, Andrea gained the confidence she needed to take the plunge. She knew she was not alone and that the community would be there every step of the way.

Embracing Baptism

On a beautiful Sunday morning, surrounded by loved ones and members of Lima First Assembly of God, Andrea felt an overwhelming sense of peace and joy. As she stepped into the baptismal waters, she let go of her fear and embraced the transformative power of her faith.

The immersion symbolized not only a cleansing of her soul but also a rebirth, a fresh start in her spiritual journey. The act of baptism publicly proclaimed her commitment to the Lord, and it became a testimony of God's triumph over her fear.


Andrea's story is an inspiration to all those who have ever grappled with fear and doubt. It demonstrates the boundless grace and love of the Lord, who is always ready to provide courage and strength to those who seek Him.
