A Celebration of Mark 16:16

Tell Your Friends

In the book of Mark, Chapter 16 and verse 16 tells us:

He who believes and is baptized will be saved; but he who does not believe will be condemned.

Pew Research Center tells us:

This is why I’m so excited by the outpouring of love and support when my two youngest children announced that they’d like to be baptized in this Sunday’s service.  Both my wife and I have been baptized in water (and the Holy Spirit, for that matter).  We believe the kids, though only 8 and 10, have reached an age of understanding regarding Jesus and his teachings, and what his birth/death/resurrection means to them.  They were ready.

It was an exciting morning.  All three of the kids’ grandmothers were able to make it; one grandfather, and even a great grandmother.  Here are the videos:

It’s so important for kids to be surrounded by their fellow faithful as they grow and face new challenges and temptations.  We’re very blessed to have so many people like this in our children’s lives.  Thank you to everyone who I know will continue to pray for our children and our family.
