What’s the Big Deal About Baptism?

To close the sermon this morning I gave a number of images that baptism might be associated with. Which one was most significant to you when you were baptized? Is there a more meaningful one you associate with your baptism today? The images were:

  • A Wedding Ceremony – where life long vows are made and a forever intimate relationship is initiated.
  • The Birth of a Child – where new life begins full of hopes, dreams, and possibilities.

  • A Bath – where sins are washed away and a person is made clean and fresh.
  • A Burial – where the old life is forever laid to rest and a new life is begun.
  • A Family Reunion – where one is recognized as belonging to the larger family of God.
