Baptism in water is a turning point for those who truly want to start a new life with the Lord Jesus.
After His resurrection, the Lord Jesus taught the disciples about its importance by giving them a clear command: “Go into all the world and preach the gospel to every creature. He who believes and is baptized will be saved; but he who does not believe will be condemned” (Mark16:15,16).
In the same way that a burial ceremony signifies that the last tie between man and his earthly life has been severed, baptism in water is a public declaration that a believer is severing all ties to his natural life. Our inner self is put to death, and sin no longer has dominion over us.
For this reason, when a person accepts the Lord Jesus as his Savior and is baptized in water, he abandons a life of sin for a life of doing the will of God. No matter how bad a person’s temper, after conversion and baptism in water, he becomes gentle and humble, demonstrating to all around that a true servant of the Lord does not live according to the dictates of this world.
On Sunday August 16th 10am we will be giving this opportunity to all who desire this new life. We will have a brief class one week before, on August 9th at 9:30am, to teach you how to prepare before you’re baptized and what to do after. Remember; never leave for tomorrow what must be done today.
