Baptism ~ A Visible Testimony to Faith


It's appears to be a simple body of water, yet represents so much more.

You are "crucified" (standing upright in water), you are "buried" (immersed into the water), and you are "resurrected into life" (raised out of the water). Water baptism is a picture of spiritual baptism. It is the outward testimony of the believer's inward faith. A sinner is saved the moment he places his faith in the Lord Jesus Christ. Baptism is a visible testimony to that faith.

Baptism 2

Galatians 3:26,27 - “For you are all sons of God through faith in Christ Jesus. For as many of you as were baptized into Christ have put on Christ.”

Baptism 1

It was a joyful occassion; a time to celebrate. This was Adam in the choir room before his baptism. As you can see, he was quite relaxed.

What a special day. Adam, I am so happy that you have grown to know Jesus personally and that you wanted to dedicate your life to Him and His ways. What a privilege it was to be there to share this special event with you. I'm so proud of you.
Love, Aunt Saundra
