Baptism at Threshold

Friday Dec 10 was a special night at Threshold. We had a Friday Night Baptism Service and four youth got water baptized. We always invite family and friends to join us for this occasion where they get a little taste of what we do here at Threshold. After a parent edition of the game show Minute to Win It, the Threshold band rocked the house with some worship. Then special guest Pastor Duane came and spoke about what baptism is all about.

The four baptism candidates then came forward and shared some of their journey with God and why they wanted to get water baptized.

They also did something that is unique to the baptisms at Threshold where they read a Declaration of Commitment. This declaration is about committing their lives to Jesus Christ, living a life of integrity, seeing through the lies of peer pressure, refusing to let drugs, alcohol and tobacco influence their lives, and committing to sexual purity.

Then they were baptized and prayed for by our Threshold leaders who shared what they felt God was speaking to each individual. It was a great night of celebration and testimony of the great things God is doing among our young people.

    Baptisms are always a special time. Having gotten Baptized myself at Threshold in May of 2007, I am both excited to see where God is leading His people and the impact they are gonna make in the world.

    Its also humbling as leader now, to see the fruit manifesting in the lives of Youth as we pour our time and energy into creating relationships of mentoring and discipling.

    God is good and He is faithful!
