On October 1st, 2017 we celebrated the Lord’s grace and love upon our lives with three baptisms! As we welcomed our new members to the Church family, Pastor Benjamin gave a call for membership and 10 more souls came forward to affirm their faith in Jesus and make a commitment to the church family.

So what do we do? Keep on sinning so God can keep on forgiving? I should hope not! If we’ve left the country where sin is sovereign, how can we still live in our old house there? Or didn’t you realize we packed up and left there for good? That is what happened in baptism. When we went under the water, we left the old country of sin behind; when we came up out of the water, we entered into the new country of grace—a new life in a new land! That’s what baptism into the life of Jesus means. When we are lowered into the water, it is like the burial of Jesus; when we are raised up out of the water, it is like the resurrection of Jesus. Each of us is raised into a light-filled world by our Father so that we can see where we’re going in our new grace-sovereign country.” Romans 6:1-3 MSG
