There may be no more appropriate way to begin a new year and take the next step in your spiritual journey than baptism! The imagery and meaning of baptism is all about the end of the old, the beginning of the new -- the death and burial of our old life with Christ in the after, the resurrection of a God-given new life coming out of the water. How great is that?! And if you haven't been baptized as a follower of Jesus, this is a perfect next step in growing your faith!
We've got baptisms scheduled for Sunday, March 17. Sign up today! We'd love for you to take this next step in your journey!
