Dr. Waylon Bailey
Jesus told us to go into all the world making disciples and baptizing and teaching those disciples.
In the days ahead I hope to talk with you about making disciples and teaching them about the
commands of Christ.
Today, I want to talk with you about baptism.
Baptism is not to make us Christians but to show that we have followed after Christ. The word “baptize”
is a Greek word that means “to dip.”
This is what we say about baptism . . .
Baptism occurs following an individual’s commitment to Christ. Baptism is a person’s way of:
b. being obedient to God.
c. It is a public (outward) demonstration
d. of a personal (inward) commitment that has already been made to Christ.
This Sunday, September 6th, we have our outdoor RIVER baptism at the Bogue Falaya Park in downtown Covington. It is a very special time as we witness the baptism of about 30 new believers.
We hope you will join us as we meet together to celebrate their new life in Christ.
