Ray Buchanan

I grew up in Chicago with three brothers. My dad was the disciplinarian; my mom was the spoiler. God used my mom to plant the seed with us that going to church was of value.

I prayed to accept Christ at age 12, but even into my college years I wrestled with living according to the ways of the world and living the true Christian life. I believe the Lord knew my heart, and the tension I felt, as He patiently waited for me to come around.

In 1996, I finally began to seriously study the Bible. My passion for Jesus Christ increased, leading me to recommit my life to Him. As I did, I learned how I could have victory over the flesh by the power of His Holy Spirit.

I am blessed to perform in the NFL, but even more so to know that I have been saved by grace. When I die, I will enter the Kingdom of Heaven for all eternity.
