One of the greatest joys of being a pastor is getting to share in people’s decisions to ask Jesus into their heart as Lord and Savior and then walking with them into the waters of baptism. When someone comes forward at the end of one of our services I meet with them before they are actually baptized so that they can understand what they are doing and what “baptism” is all about. There are far too many folks who have been baptized and see it as nothing more than getting “dunked.” Paul said, in Romans 6, that “we were buried with Christ through baptism, into death…and raised to newness of life.” What a powerful picture for those about to enter the “watery grave.”
I wanted to share with you some of the pictures of those recently baptized at BCC. I hope that these pictures will cause you to remember the day that you stood in the watery grave and announced to the world that from that day forward God’s will be preeminent in your life.
In His Steps,
