Eight Baptized at Bethlehem Baptist Church

BETHLEHEM, NC (October 21, 2018) — Baptism is “going public” about your faith in Jesus and declaring to the community your commitment to following Him. It’s the next step after salvation. Simply put, believers are baptized because Christ commands it. Jesus said, “Go then, to all people everywhere and make them my disciples, baptize them in the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit, and then teach them to obey everything I have commanded you.” (Matthew 28:19-20) When believers are baptized, they are following the example set by Jesus. The Gospel of Mark tells us, “At that time Jesus came from Nazareth and was baptized by John in the river.”

Eight individuals followed Jesus Christ in baptism on Sunday, October 21, 2018, during the morning service at Bethlehem Baptist Church: Dallas Gragg, Delores Gragg, Taner Johnston, Allie Moore, Rylan Mosteller, Blake Sharpe, Braylon Sharpe, and Savannah Skluzacek.

Special thanks to Joy Baptist Church for the use of their portable baptistry.
