Family Commissioning
May 13th!

Family Commissioning is a decision made by parents to publicly share their desire to accept their role as their children’s primary spiritual leader and raise their children to love and serve Jesus Christ.  It includes an invitation to the church body to pray for them, and commit to helping them along their parenting journey.

On May 13th we will have our next Family Commissioning! There will be an informational meeting on May 6th in the Living Room at each campus during the 2nd service (10:30a).

Want to Know More About Baptism?

We have a podcast called “Baptism – Going Public”  from 9.7.14 that you can listen to that will help you understand the heart behind the biblical practice of baptism. Below are some scriptures that teach about what baptism is, and why we should be baptized. We’d encourage you to read and pray about that if you are considering baptism. We are always available to visit with you about it!

 

What is Baptism?

When you come to faith in Christ, an inner change takes place. Baptism is the outward symbol of the inward commitment you have made to Jesus Christ. It is the first step of obedience in your journey with Jesus and a public statement of your faith. The waters of baptism do not save you. The Bible tells us we are saved by the mercy and grace of God. The Bible makes it very clear that baptism is a part of our commitment to Christ.

Additional commitments when you become a Christian include:

– Realizing your need for Christ (Romans 3:23; 6:23)

– Putting your faith in Christ (John 3:16)

– Turning from your sins (Acts 2:38)

– Verbalizing your trust and commitment by confessing Christ (Romans 10:9)

 

 Why Be Baptized?

The New Testament offers the following reasons to be baptized:

– To follow Christ’s example (Mark 1:9)

– To follow Christ’s commandment (Matthew 28:19)

– To demonstrate your faith (Acts 18:8)

 

 When Should You Be Baptized?

Baptism is for believers. A believer is someone who has decided to trust Christ alone for salvation. Believers realize that their sin separates them from God and that only Christ’s death on the cross bridges the gap between them and God.

If you have come to that point in your spiritual journey, then you are ready to be baptized. It is your way of demonstrating the internal miracle, in an external way, to the outside world. As soon as you have decided to fully receive Christ into your life and have begun walking in a new direction, you should be baptized! (Acts 8:35-38).
