2 Corinthians 5:17
Baptism Sunday: Sept 2 2018
What is the meaning and significance of Baptism?
Baptism is the outward expression of your inward decision to put our faith in Jesus Christ!
When Christians are baptized, they are submerged under water to identify with the death and burial of Jesus and raised out of the water to identify with his resurrection!
The old is washed away, your mistakes, your sins, your shame... and the new has begun.
Your fresh start, your forgiveness, your newness in Christ!
Water baptism is a public declaration of three very important things:
You are a follower of Jesus Christ (Acts 2.41)
You are beginning a changed life in Christ (Romans 6.4)
You are part of a new family. (Galatians 3.26-27)
Why Should I Get Baptized?
Accepting Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior is The Best thing You Could Ever Do!
It's time to celebrate!
Christ gave you the greatest gift when He gave you His Life!
And YOU made the greatest decision when you gave Him yours!
That's something worth celebrating!
Think of it this way.
Your Salvation is the marriage.
Your Baptism is the wedding!
It's the outward declaration of your love, His goodness and your new beginning as a believer in Jesus Christ
It's a celebration of this incredible new journey of forgiveness, newness and eternal salvation!
