Worship of Baptism and Communion

November 30, 2022


Jesus told Pharisee Nicodemus about God’s love when he said, “For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.” In Acts 2:37-38, Peter instructs following his sermon: “When the people heard this they were cut to the heart and said to Peter and the other apostles, “Brothers, what shall we do? Peter replied, Repent and be baptized, every one of you, in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins.” These waters do not remove sin. Jesus’ payment for our sins was completed on the cross. Baptism is a picture of Chelsie’s commitment to Jesus’ gift of forgiveness. A person enters the water and immersed symbolic of the old nature of sin being buried rising from the water to live in a renewed life in Jesus.


A command of our God not only to Israel but to New Testament believers: Deuteronomy 6:4-9 “Hear, O Israel, The Lord our God, the Lord is one. Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength. These commandments that I give you today are to be upon your hearts, Impress them on your children. Talk about them when you sit at home and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up. Tie them as symbols on your hands and bind them on your foreheads. Write them on the doorframes of your houses and on your gates.”

God as our creator has instructed us to love God and to give God the first place in our life. We are to impress our faith on our children. We are to make our faith in God a part of our life by in speech and lifestyle. We are to testify of God’s goodness with our hands by serving others and in our speech. We should bind our love for God in our thinking.

Benediction: Colossians 1:15-20 The Apostle Paul to the brothers and sisters at Colosee. “He is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn over all creation. For by him all things were created; things in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or power or rulers or authorities, all were created by him and for him. He is before all things, and in him all things hold together. And he is the head of the body, the church, he is the beginning and the firstborn from among the dead, so that in everything he might have the supremacy. For God was pleased to have all his fullness dwell in him. And through him to reconcile to himself all things, whether things on earth or things in heaven, by making peace through his blood shed on the cross. “
