dying to self; rising with Christ

This Sunday was our church baptism and picnic. And was it full. 365 people showed up. 365 (!!!).

And most importantly 21 people were baptized! It was an awesome day for God's glory!

Baptism by emersion is a symbol of dying to your old self (ways) when you go under water and then rising with Christ when you come out. It is an amazing expirience. I was baptized a few years ago myself.

So proud of everyone who was baptized on Sunday!

"May the Lord bless you and keep you. May He make His face shine on you and give you His peace. And may you always love Jesus first above all else. Amen."  Numbers 24-26

"Paul said, 'John's baptism was a baptism of repentance. He told the people to believe in the one coming after him, that is, in Jesus."
Acts 19:4
