Baptism: a joyful celebration and a solemn commitmentAbby Brook
We celebrated on Sunday evening 13 January, at Hillview Evangelical Church, Hucclecote as Sophie and Ehren from Abbey Church were baptised. They expressed their gratitude to God for sending his Son to die for their forgiveness and described their journey towards making a lifelong commitment to following Jesus. Their baptisms are a public declaration of the promises they have made to God in response to the offer of new life that he extends to all who are willing to trust him.
Our new Youth Leader, Ben, spoke on Acts chapter 8 verses 26-39, explaining how God sent Philip, the servant, to explain the way of salvation to the seeker, the Ethiopian official. God loves to welcome seekers, and calls his committed servants to share our faith with all who seek.
