Today in church we had 4 scheduled baptisms. They came and gave their testimonies. It was powerful. Then after praying this prayer: CONSECRATION PRAYER: Dear Father, This day, I pray to receive Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior and desire to consecrate my body to You, to do Your will, and not my own will. I want to trust, love and obey You. I pray that You will enable me to live here on earth in such a way that when I stand before You Father God in Heaven, I may hear you say, 'Well done good and faithful servant! Enter into the joy of your Lord! In Jesus name. Amen.
Washed Clean we shared this song and asked if anyone else wanted to claim Jesus as Lord and Savior and get baptized. 2 more people came forward and fully clothed claimed Jesus as Lord and their desire for baptism. One of them said 'I was baptized as an infant and never knew that as an adult I could choose to be baptized but now I understand what baptism is.' 6 baptisms total with clear statements of faith in Jesus with the last 2 as representative of their faith in God through Jesus. It was an awesome day in church today! The church was crowded, more kids in children's church than ever with the kids coming over to watch and listen to the baptisms. The result is 4 children want to be baptized and 3 more adults want to be baptized. God is good! Thank you Jesus!
