It All Begins with Baptism

God's Promise, Our Faithfulness

Baptism is one action that we are called to do by Christ in the Great Commission given to us by our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ (Matthew 28:19-20; Mark 16:15-16). We are told that Baptism is a saving act given to us by God and for all who believe and are baptized will be saved. Belief is a gracious gift given to us by God and for us, as followers of Christ, it is imperative for us to build each other up and remind each other of the promises that God has given to us in those waters covered joined with the Word.

Some see Baptism as something that is done on those that can "choose," but this fails to keep in line with the many verses that remind us that we are chosen by God. God is the chooser and we worship not because we choose, but because we are chosen.
