NHHK Water Baptism
February 25th, 2018
Water Baptism is a public declaration of our identification with Jesus; His death, burial and resurrection. By being water baptized you are publicly saying that you have died to yourself and have decided to follow Jesus Christ. Jesus Himself exemplifies the importance of Water Baptism by being baptized by John the Baptist.
Water Baptism is a simple act that has enormous spiritual significance: - It is an irrevocable decision for us to say that I want to die to the old and live in the new. I want the reality of a new life, not just the trappings. - We will live in a new season and rejoice with others as we die to the old. - Water baptism is a living and public expression, not just private commitment in our hearts. It is reflected in our lives, in our families and in our worship.
