The Joy of Baptism

The ceremony of baptism has caused a lot of controversy over the years.  How much water should be involved? Should we baptize infants? Who should be there to see it? Our sermon aims to unpack some of the mysteries of baptism.

    • God is triune
    • your sins have been washed away
    • through Christ, God has given you new life
    • you have joined a new community

What method?



  • baptism is not salvation
  • baptism can strengthen your assurance of salvation

If you know Christ, baptism is for you
