Pastor's Corner

September 2023



Romans 6:3 “Know ye not, that so many of us as were baptized into Jesus Christ were baptized into his death?”

Since there is no English word for the Greek baptize, the translators brought it into English. Because the Israelites shared with Moses the experience of trusting through terror, it is said that they were “baptized unto Moses.” They were drawn into oneness with him that night as they never would have been had they not gone through the same experience together (Exodus 14- the Red Sea). Since God reckons that every Christian has died with Christ on the cross, He says that every Christian has been “baptized into Christ.” We are one with Him, having received His very life. God says that we are members of His body (1 Corinthians 12:12-13). The Christian ceremony of baptism is an outward sign that a Christian believes this in his heart. The question is, are you a believer?

Yours in Christ,

Pastor Jeff
