We welcome those who have never been baptized in water to sign-up to take the next step in your faith journey.
Baptism is perhaps the most recognizable ceremony in the Christian tradition. Maybe this is because the symbolism so beautifully and perfectly express what is at the heart of the Christian message, that the love of Christ has the power to utterly make you new. When a person is submerged in the water, it is as if their old, self-oriented identity is being laid to rest and the person who emerges is a new thing altogether. If you would like to express externally what God has done for you internally, it’s time to take the plunge!
The 2017 Water Baptism Service will be held Sunday, November 19 during AM2. Water baptismal permission slips are required. This service is open to the community; NLIM membership is not required to participate. The last day to complete online registration is Wednesday, November 1. A reception will follow in the Fellowship Commons.
