Baptism Opportunity

Here are a few pictures from a recent Baptism Service that was hosted by Doug and Jean and performed in the context of a small group. It was such an honor to be part of such a special occasion in the life of these believers and friends. The act of baptizing believers is a physical representation of the resurrection of Christ that was formally instituted by Christ and should be observed as an act of obedience in the life of every believer.

On the weekend of October 28 and 29 we will be having baptisms in all services. If you have never been baptized this would be a fantastic opportunity for you! To express your interest in this you can email Eli at esuddarth@parkviewchurch.org. The deadline for getting your name in is October 2nd. Hope to see you all down under! BTW: Jean also told me her pond is available any time if you would like to consider an all-natural baptism.

Awesome pictures!

I think it is great to have baptism during the actual services from time to time. That way people can see what it is all about. I'm sure there are people who would like to take part and just don't think about it because they don't get to see it done too often.

I agree Jen. I think it's great we are starting to do baptism more in the services so more people can be encouraged by the testimony of others. As you point out, it is also a good encouragement for people to step forward in faith in this way!
