In Matthew 28:19, Jesus gave the following instructions: “Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the Name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit…” Jesus made it clear that water baptism is an important ordinance of the church.
Through water baptism the new believer is making a public statement of their faith in Jesus Christ. They are acting out their identification with Christ in (1) His death and burial unto sin, and (2) His resurrection to newness of life. This ordinance serves to continually bring before the church a re-enactment of this double truth in the life of every new believer.
Please join us this Sunday for this special water baptism.
