Baptism is one of the most ancient traditions of the Christian faith, instituted by Jesus himself. Baptism is our chance to publicly declare, commemorate, and celebrate the fact that we've placed our trust in Christ for salvation. Baptism represents our old life dying, and our new life beginning. It is also a remembrance of the fact that Jesus was died and buried in the ground, and rose to new life on the third day. Through Baptism we are vividly reminded of Jesus’ sacrifice on our behalf, and the new life that we now have because of him.
Some people are baptized because they have placed their faith in Jesus for the first time, others choose to be baptized because they were baptized as a child and want to make a public declaration of faith as an adult. Some choose to be baptized because they have returned to faith in God after a hiatus and want to celebrate what God has done in their life.
We will be baptizing people during our Sunday AM service at Adolphus Elementary on Sunday, September 16th. Please join us for the celebration! If you would like to be baptized, please click below to email our Discipleship Pastor, Percy Hudson.
