A Child of God through Baptism

A Child of God through Baptism

This past Wednesday evening Sophee Kaye Johnson was born to Lindsey and Zach.  The baby is healthy, mom is feeling well, and both parents along with Sophee’s older sisters, Morgan and Karlee, are now at home adjusting to their new schedule.

This Sunday Sophee will be the recipient of another miracle: a new life in Christ.  Through baptism she will be forgiven for the sinfulness that she naturally inherited as a human being and she will also receive the gift of faith to believe it.  This monumental event for any person is especially important for a little child as God brings the blessings of his cross to the heart of an infant for the very first time!

Although it may look simple: it’s just water combined with the words of Jesus, baptism is extremely powerful because it is backed by God’s promise.  For more information on baptism and the ways God gives us his forgiveness that he won through his death and resurrection, click HERE
