Baptism Sunday is one of our favorite times at Antioch! There are few things as wonderful as celebrating new life in Christ with our church family. This past Sunday, we got to rejoice together as eleven people publicly proclaimed their faith in Jesus and their commitment to follow Him all the days of their life. It was so fun to cheer each person on, and even though it was a bit chilly in our outdoor truck bed baptismal, the smiles of every person coming out of the water were filled with overwhelming joy.
From acknowledging the way God is healing personal brokenness, to wanting to share faith in Jesus publicly, it was powerful to hear why every person wanted to get baptized. Several people shared that Jesus has been doing a work of transformation in their life and that they are now ready to go all in. One person said, "I love Jesus and I want y'all know to it!" We are so thankful that each of these people has decided to follow Jesus wholeheartedly. After everyone was baptized, our lead pastor, Jake Griffin, challenged us all to pray for and with our new brothers and sisters in Christ.
We are amazed and thankful at what God is doing among us! We hope your faith is stirred and we can't wait until our next Baptism Sunday.
