Baptism is symbolic of the death, burial, and resurrection of Christ.
Once we have accepted Jesus as our Lord and Savior, baptism is a way for us to publicly declare our new life in Christ. It is also a step of obedience based on God’s commands and allows us to follow the example of Jesus, who submitted himself to baptism to “fulfill all righteousness.”
As soon as Jesus was baptized, he went up out of the water. At that moment heaven was opened, and he saw the Spirit of God descending like a dove and alighting on him. And a voice from heaven said, “This is my Son, whom I love; with him I am well pleased.” Matthew 3:16-17 NIVMatthew 3:16-17 NIV
Then Jesus came to them and said, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.” Matthew 28:18-20 NIVMatthew 28:18-20 NIV
Those who accepted his message were baptized, and about three thousand were added to their number that day. Acts 2:41 NIVActs 2:41 NIV
But when they believed Philip as he proclaimed the good news of the kingdom of God and the name of Jesus Christ, they were baptized, both men and women. Acts 8:12 NIVActs 8:12 NIV
Please make contact with one of the Elders if you would like to be baptized—we would love to hear from you.
Instead, we will celebrate baptism at Patrick and Jodi Spieldiener’s home located in Schaan. Limited parking is available in their driveway and on the street, so ride sharing is encouraged.
The Worship Service will take place after the baptism at the usual place.
