Baptism Service – April 2
We are having a baptismal service on April 2nd at our 10:30am service. To date, there are 7 candidates.
One of Jesus’ final commands to his followers, before he ascended to heaven was to “Go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you” (Matthew 28:19-20). Baptism, therefore, is a command for every subsequent follower of Jesus to obey. It is a demonstration of our obedience to Christ. It isn’t a sign of maturity. It isn’t something we should put off until we’ve overcome all our sins and reached some higher level of Christian maturity. No. We are commanded to get baptized as a sign that we belong to Christ, that we have been cleansed and forgiven, and that we have a new life in Christ.
UPDATE: Here’s the link to that service on our YouTube channel.
