We are excited to celebrate baptisms as a church family during service on October 23! Every person being baptized will read their testimony aloud and be immersed, symbolizing the death, burial and resurrection of Jesus.
Jesus instructs us to be baptized, and He set the example through His own baptism (Matthew 28:19-20, Mark 1:9). Our obedience to His instruction shows that we believe and follow Jesus (1 John 2:3). Because Jesus went public about His love for us, we can go public about our love for Him. These public displays of baptism also help the church family provide support and accountability to one another.
