Hi everyone, My name is Jon and while I've lurked on this forum for sometime, I recently took the plunge and registered. I'm from Michigan; I live just south of Flint and about an hour north and west of Detroit. I am somewhat new to reformed theology and spent a long time in my life wrestling through teachings I was brought up on in the Free Methodist church of my youth (e.g. Wesleyanism/Arminianism). Through God's grace and a few faithful reformed brothers who the Lord used to influence me, He has drawn me from the teachings I was raised on, and today I consider myself a Reformed Baptist. I've enjoyed reading this forum for a few years now, and look forward to continuing to learn from the wisdom (and occasional banter) this forum is known for!
