Cravers, don’t forget that we are having baptisms this Thursday after the Crave service!!
So, why do we even do baptisms? Here’s some info for you:
Why should you be baptized?
--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.
“Those who believed and accepted His message were baptized.” Acts 2:41
