Baptism - New Life
"having been BURIED with Him in baptism, in which you were also RAISED up with Him through faith in the working of God, who raised Him from the dead." (Col. 2:12)
Death & life are at the core of the gospel message...buried with Him in baptism and raised to the newness of life in Christ Jesus! Gospel means good news and this is very good news for all those who have put their faith in Christ.
This last Sunday a guy named Ian was visiting a friend who lives in IV...he was staying at the dp house and being loved on all weekend. He ended up coming to the gathering on Sunday and giving his life to Christ. We baptized him that night in the Pacific Ocean around 8:30pm, it was amazing! (And I know the picture doesn't look like it was taken at night, but cameras do crazy things these days)
God is good, mighty to save!
