Special Baptism Tonight at HWC

March 28, 2012

At 6 p.m. tonight we will be baptizing a young man who became a follower of Christ this weekend.  We usually baptize only on the first Sunday of the month but are making an exception this time.  This young man is being deployed tomorrow.

Why is it important to baptize him?  First, baptism is the first act of obedience after salvation.  It’s hard to do the second and third acts if you haven’t done the first.  Second, he is being baptized into our community and through baptism he is initiated into belonging to our faith community.  We want him to be an extension of the body of Christ as he travels around the world and we want him to have the confidence that he has a spiritual family who loves him and is praying for him.

Join us tonight at 6 p.m. for just a few minutes to celebrate this great moment.
