Dear Church Family,
The Methodist Church Book of Worship reminds us that “Through the Sacrament of Baptism, we are initiated into Christ’s holy Church. We are incorporated into God’s mighty acts of salvation and given new birth through water and the Spirit. All this is God’s gift, offered to us without price.”
This is an amazing blessing. Not only are invited into God’s family of believers, but we become participants in the Great Commission given by Jesus to his Disciples when he said “Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit.”
Baptism isn’t something we keep to ourselves; it’s something to be shared with others.
As we reflect on the baptism of Jesus today, let us be thankful for God’s grace and mercy poured out for many and recommit ourselves to his service.
