A Baptism

Today's service was special, it ended with a baptism. Tami joined the church by profession of faith and was baptized. Our church greets a new member with hugs, from everyone. We like an excuse to hug.

We all joined together in the professing the Christian faith found on page 35 of the UM Hymnal. It is worth reprinting here.

"I believe in God, the Father Almighty, creator of heaven and earth.

I believe in Jesus Christ, his only Son our Lord, who was conceived by the Virgin Mary, suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, died and was buried; he descended to the dead. On the third day he rose again; he ascended into heaven, is seated at the right hand of the Father, and will come again to judge the living and the dead.

I believe in the Holy Spirit, the holy catholic church, the communion of saints, the forgiveness of sins, the resurrection of the body, and life everlasting."
