Jesus calls all his followers to “Repent and be baptized!” Baptism is our way of saying, “I believe in Jesus! I trust in Jesus for the forgiveness of sins” just like when I wear a wedding ring to say, “I’m taken! I’m married to my lovely wife!” My ring doesn’t make me married no more than my baptism makes me a Christian. But baptism is an important act of obedience that Jesus commands as a sign of our loyalty to him.
There will be a couple of opportunities for you to get baptized this summer outside in God’s lovely creation. If those don’t work for some reason, we do have a baptismal in our church sanctuary we can use as well. You may not know much about baptism; that’s ok. I’d be happy to spend time with you explaining more in detail what God’s word says about baptism and if this might be the right time for you.
If you feel God is calling you to take this step of baptism, please contact me at the church office. (715) 748-4936 or firstname.lastname@example.org
