An amazing Sunday in simplechurch land. Baptising some of our very best!
Baptism is the starting point for a follower of Jesus. The church calls it an "initiation" and it's rich in meaning! It's the way a follower identifies themselves with the death and resurrection of Jesus. When they go under the water they are joining with Christ who put to death the sin of the whole world! And when they come out of the water they are declaring that his resurrection life is for them too. Dead to sin... alive with Christ.
Jesus has come to give life... and life to the full. If you've heard a message of Jesus that says something other than this, you've heard the wrong message.
