Shane said he started attending church at age 16, and became a born again Christian at age 21.
“I started attending church with my parents when I was 16 years old. I remember my parents praying a prayer of salvation, so therefore I prayed also believing this was my salvation. The difference between my parents and I was that they understood the gospel message, but I didn’t. I held on to this false assurance of salvation until the age of 21, where I came to the realization of my lostness, repented from my sin, and believed upon the Lord Jesus Christ for my deliverance from the kingdom of darkness into the Kingdom of God”.
