FOCUS ON… Baptism!
On Sunday 19th May we shared the experience of baptism with three members of our GCC family. We had our normal worship at Pemberley before Ben C reminded us of what baptism is, and then Daniel, Bill, and Chanelle shared a bit about themselves and how they had reached this decision to follow God.
We then decamped to Sawbridgeworth Evangelical Congregational Church as they have a baptistry there, and our brothers and sister took the plunge and declared their faith before family and friends!
“It’s been a great journey for me at God Central so far! I settled in well. I came to the decision to be baptised as I feel God laid it on my heart to be baptised.
When I got baptised and came out of the water I felt a massive weight lift off me, I now feel whole and I have a purpose, I’m looking forward to this new season God has put me in.”
“I made the decision to be baptised because I wanted to take that next step in my journey, I also felt like God was wanting me to get baptised as getting baptised was always on my mind. Since that day I have felt really good and am looking forward to seeing what God has instore for me in the future.”
“After I became a Christian, I knew I wanted to be baptised. But, every time I saw others taking the plunge, I told myself that I would eventually do it - but only when I’m ready. It took me some time, but I now know that I was always ready. Once I had declared Jesus Christ to be my Lord and Saviour, I was ready! After my baptism, I feel God’s presence and the Holy Spirit ever clearer in my life. I know God has big plans for me, and for all of us, and I’m excited to be a part of His Plan.”
