baptism

Filed under: Uncategorized — prothro @ 12:41 pm

One of my favorite parts of camp in Alabama was the final morning when we all woke up early to witness the baptism of four of our students. It was made extra sweet by the fact that two of my best friends were doing the baptizing. A truly wonderful morning celebrating new life in Christ.

1 Peter 3:21 and this water symbolizes baptism that now saves you also—not the removal of dirt from the body but the pledge of a good conscience toward God. It saves you by the resurrection of Jesus Christ

Love these girls!
