Baptism is a sign and seal of God's covenant of grace with us. Baptism is the visible word of God that we are cleansed in Christ's blood, buried with him unto death, that we might rise with him and walk in newness of life.
We are happy to announce that we will be baptizing several adults at this year's Lakeside Baptism! After the worship service on Sunday, August 23, we invite everyone to join us at the beach just outside of Bob's Dogs as we baptize our brothers and sisters into the faith.
After the baptism, you're invited to bring or buy a picnic lunch for us to enjoy together.
The journey of faith that begins in individual baptism continues in the church community. At Good News, baptism is always performed in the context of a congregation of God's people. Baptism is the mark of corporate as well as individual faith. The congregation commits itself to the spiritual nurture of the infant, child, or adult being baptized.
