The first part of June we celebrated here at Grace with 15 people who were baptized. These men, women, teens and children all publicly shared their faith in Christ through baptism.
We at Grace Brethren administer baptism by immersion for those who have committed their lives to Christ. Baptism is portrayed in the New Testament as a public symbol of a personal commitment to Christ. Therefore, Grace Brethren Church baptizes those who agree with God that they have missed God’s standard through self-effort but have received forgiveness through a personal commitment to Christ resulting in eternal life (Mark 16:16, Acts 2:41, Acts 8:12-13 and 36-39).
The Baptism Services are always a time of celebration and joy for us. We look forward to our next baptism service which will be coming in the Fall. If you’d like to be baptized, please call the office at 301-855-2955.
