Are you ready to make your next step?
At First Church of God we believe there’s nothing in the whole world more important than helping people find their way back to God. Baptism is an important part of your journey as a Christ-follower. Before Jesus physically left the earth, He challenged His followers with this mission:
“Go then, to all people everywhere and make them My disciples. Baptize them in the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit, and then teach them to obey everything I have commanded you.” – Matthew. 28: 19- 20.
In Jesus’ own words, being disciples, His followers, is something that involves baptism. Baptism is Jesus’ idea. He led by example by being baptized and he asked his followers to do that same. But baptism is not just some religious ritual or ceremony. The New Testament teaches that a personal commitment to Jesus is a relationship of faith, and that faith is demonstrated and acted upon in baptism. Faith is not about what you believe to be true. It’s in what and whom you put your ultimate trust and loyalty in for this life and the next.
Our next ALL CHURCH Baptism Service will be held on April 23rd. Getting baptized is one of the most exciting components of someone's faith journey. It's a way of publicly declaring a decision you've made to follow Jesus. If you're interested in getting baptized, or you just want some more info, fill out the form below or call the church at 419-782-0861 and someone will be in contact with you soon!
