Congratulations on your Baptism!

On April 5, we celebrated alongside 5 people who got baptized.  It sure felt like heaven was celebrating with us.  What a rich time of hearing their stories, prayer, public declarations of faith, worship and plunging!

Congratulations to Jayden Williams, Alvin Deegan, Lou-Ann Pinay, Brad Morand and Cora Stevenson on this step in your faith journeys.  We’re excited for what the future holds.

Here is what we, and they said (it’s the Apostle’s Creed):

Elder: Do you renounce evil and commit your life to Jesus Christ?

Person: I do.

 

Elder: Do you believe in God the Father?

Person: I believe in God, the Father Almighty, creator of heaven and earth.

 

Elder: Do you believe in Jesus Christ, the Son of God?

Person: I believe in Jesus Christ, his only Son, our Lord. He was conceived by the power of the Holy Spirit and born of the Virgin Mary. He suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, died, and was buried. He descended to the dead. On the third day he rose again. He ascended into heaven, and is seated at the right hand of the Father. He will come again to judge the living and the dead.

 

Elder: Do you believe in God the Holy Spirit?

Person: I believe in the Holy Spirit, the holy universal Church, the communion of saints, the forgiveness of sins, the resurrection of the body, and the life everlasting.

 

Elder: Will you continue in the apostles’ teaching and fellowship, in the breaking of bread, and in prayer?

Person: I will, with God’s help.

 

Elder:   Will you seek and serve Christ in all persons, loving your neighbor as yourself?

Person: I will, with God’s help.

 

Elder: Will you strive for justice and peace among all people, and respect the dignity of every human being?

Person: I will, with God’s help.
