Sunday, April 25th, is a time for Water Baptism at Believers Church. You may or may not have been water baptized, but if you have not or you were baptized as a child and didn’t understand what you were doing, we would like to invite you to participate in a wonderful time of celebration of your new commitment to Christ. We are thankful for your salvation and your desire to proclaim that thankfulness to others through Water Baptism. As a child of God, it is important to follow Jesus’ example and be baptized in water. Baptism is an outward expression of what has already occurred in our heart and is the next step that Jesus asks us to take after salvation.
"He who believes and is baptized will be saved; but he who does not believe will be condemned”
“Then Peter said to them, "Repent, and let every one of you be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins; and you shall receive the gift of the Holy Spirit” Acts 2:38.
I highly encourage you to be water baptized. It will be a significant spiritual event in your life that you will treasure forever. Don’t let the devil rob you of this joy. As you make the decision to be baptized, we rejoice with you as you publicly declare, “I am now a new creation in Christ Jesus, the old has passed away and all things are new! I am now baptized into the Body of Christ Jesus. I am part of His family!”
Things you will need to bring with you to baptism:
- Shorts and a shirt that can get wet. We do not have baptism robes so do not wear thin or white garments that tend to show through when they become wet.
- Towel and any other toiletry you may need.
- Dry clothes to change into.
- Plastic bag for your wet clothes.
- As many family members and friends as possible.
If you desire to be baptized, please call the church office as soon as possible to verify which service, 9:00 a.m. or 11:00 a.m., that you would like to be baptized in.
Should you have any questions or need any additional information, please feel free to contact me here at the church at 681-1440.
Thank you and God bless you,
Pastor Scott Moore
