If you attend a church, or perhaps intend to do so, it’s probable that you believe that there is a God and that Jesus Christ is His Son. If that is so, then it’s really important to understand what God has revealed about Himself and His purpose in His inspired word, the Bible. God’s word is accessible to all of us and He, as our Creator, has every right to expect us to seek to read it and to understand His message and what He and the Lord Jesus Christ require of us.
Jesus taught that we must be born again (John 3:7). This accords with his teaching in Matthew 7 that there are only two ways of life – a broad way, trodden by the mass of humanity, that leads to the oblivion of death, and a narrow, more difficultway, discovered by relatively few, that leads to salvation and eternal life in God’s Kingdom to come. There is only one way to salvation, as Jesus also said, “I am the way, the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me” (John 14:6). What has this to do with baptism? The answer is, a great deal! Baptism by total immersion is essential to associate us with the Lord Jesus Christ’s death and resurrection (Romans 6:1-5).
We invite you to a free Bible presentation on this vital topic, Baptism’a life and death importance. The time and date for this is 7.00pm on Sunday evening the 1st of September. The venue is the Christadelphian Hall, 489 Mount Gravatt-Capalaba Road, corner of Boyanda Street, opposite Ham Road, Wishart. That’s on Sunday evening the 1st of September at 7 o’clock.
