For those in the church and community who want to commit/recommit their lives to the Lord, Pastor Jeff will be offering water baptism classes through the month of June leading up to a water baptism event currently scheduled for July 9th, 2017.
If you read under the “What We Believe” section of our website, you will see a few key points related to being born again and baptized in the spirit of God:
- Salvation has been provided through Jesus Christ for all men; and those who repent and believe in Him are Born again of the Holy Spirit, receive the gift of eternal life, and become the children of God.
- It is the will of God that each believer should be filled with the Holy Spirit and be sanctified wholly, being separated from sin and the world and fully dedicated to the will of God, thereby receiving power for holy living and effective service. This is both a crisis and a progressive experience wrought in the life of the believer subsequent to conversion
These points speak to the personal and direct nature of God’s grace – that by accepting Jesus as your Lord and Savior and living your life for him, you are saved. We believe water baptisms is a ritual for believers to make/re-affirm a commitment back to the Lord:
- …The local church is a body of believers in Christ who are joined together for the worship of God, edification through the Word of God, prayer, fellowship, the proclamation of the gospel, and observance of the ordinances of baptism and the Lord’s Supper [communion].
If you have accepted Jesus and your Lord and Savior, or if you want to accept him as your Lord and Savior and to re-affirm that commitment through baptism, then please contact us to set up time to speak to Pastor Jeff by clicking on the Contact Us link.
