July 2017 PacWest Dialog Baptisms

We Celebrate Baptism (and not just because of the heat wave)!

Believer's baptism is worth celebrating. It represents a life in transformation through saving faith in Jesus Christ. Or, as John Piper has explained:

"...Baptism has meaning and importance only because the death and resurrection of Jesus are infinitely important for our rescue from the wrath of God and our everlasting joy in his glorious presence... We are not mainly talking about religious ritual here. We are not mainly talking about church tradition here. We are mainly talking about Jesus Christ and his magnificent work of salvation in dying for our sins and rising for our justification.... So don’t have small thoughts (about baptism).... Have large thoughts. Great thoughts about great reality—Jesus Christ, the Son of God, crucified to bear the sins of millions and raised to give them everlasting life in the new heavens and the new earth."

This is what and why we celebrate! Congratulations to all those recently baptized at Calvary Baptist Turlock (top picture), The Church at Antioch (lower picture), Community Bible MaderaEmbrace Community Stockton, and throughout PacWest (watch Facebook for more pics and stories).

Let's keep featuring and celebrating baptism in messages, classes, conversations, and in public baptism services.

Better Together,
David Yetter
Executive Minister
