Join us for Summer Beach Baptisms this Sunday, July 22nd!! Registration and BBQ begins at 1pm; baptisms begin at 3pm.
Place: Doheny Beach, 25300 Dana Point Harbor Drive (Picnic Area #12, the grass-side of the strand). Parking is $15.
You will be given a t-shirt for your baptism (that you get to keep!), but please bring your own shorts/bathing suit and towel.
Hot dogs and buns will be provided; please bring your own drinks/chips, etc.
So, why do we even do baptisms? Here’s some info for you:
--To follow Christ’s example—“At that time Jesus came from Nazareth and was baptized by John in the river.” Mark 1:9.
--Because Christ commanded it—“Jesus said, ‘Go then to all people everywhere and make them my disciples, baptize them in the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit, and then teach them to obey everything I have commanded you…’” Matthew 28: 19-20.
--Because it shows you are a believer—“…many of the Corinthians who heard him believed and were baptized.” Acts 18:8.
--Because obeying Christ’s command shows you know Him—“We know that we have come to know Him, if we obey His commands.” 1 John 2:3
Every person who has made the decision to believe in Christ should be baptized! It is a symbol of Christ’s burial and resurrection and a symbol of your new life as a Christian.(Please note: Children 8 thru 12 must attend the pre-baptism class through Saddleback's Children's Ministry. Classes are held the first weekend of each month; please call 949-609-8651 for more information.)
