Time for another MOVIE Night for our Church Family at Allen Cinemark.

As we know, Jesus began his formal ministry by being baptized. And since Jesus was baptized, it is good for us to follow His example.
But, what is “baptism,” and why should a person be baptized? And, if you haven’t been baptized, then how do you know when you’re ready to be baptized?
Well, as followers of Jesus Christ, we affirm that the “act” of baptism is both a divine gift and a human response. And, it is the “death” and “resurrection” of Jesus Christ that not only gives the “act” of baptism its meaning, but explain why we should be baptized into the “death” and “resurrection” story of Jesus Christ.
“Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age” (Matthew 28:19-20).
“Or don’t you know that all of us who were baptized into Christ Jesus were baptized into his death? We were therefore buried with him through baptism into death in order that, just as Christ was raised from the dead through the glory of the Father, we too may live a new life” (Romans 6:3-4).
“So in Christ Jesus you are all children of God through faith, for all of you who were baptized into Christ have clothed yourselves with Christ”(Galatians 3:26-27).
“For we were all baptized by one Spirit so as to form one body—whether Jews or Gentiles, slave or free—and we were all given the one Spirit to drink” (1 Corinthians 12:13).
If you would like to talk with me about the “act” of baptism, then just let me know. As we walk through this new season of Lent together, perhaps this is now the perfect time for you to be baptized in Jesus Christ!
