1. Water Baptism:

Baptism is a step of commitment to Jesus Christ. It's not required to be saved, but it's an outward testimony of the fact that we have received Jesus.

What is Water Baptism? Baptism means we were ______ with Christ so we could be ______ with Him in resurrection. Ro 6:3-5 "Or don’t you know that all of us who were baptized into Christ Jesus were baptized into his _____? We were therefore ______ with him through baptism into death in order that, just as Christ was ______ from the dead through the glory of the Father, we too may ____ a new life. If we have been united with him like this in his death, we will certainly also be united with him in his resurrection."  

Why Should I Be baptized? _____ was baptized as an example for all of us (Mt 3:1-17). He commanded __ to _______ others when they became followers of Jesus (Mt 28:18-20). "All _________ in heaven and on earth has been _____ to me. _________ go and make disciples of all nations, _________ 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." The New Testament records Peter and Paul along with a host of unnamed followers of Christ baptizing new believers. There is no doubt…all followers of Jesus should be baptized. 

What should I expect to experience? God loves and honors his obedient children, and baptism is a step of obedience. Expect to be loved, honored and blessed by the Lord, however He decides to do that. Many people have had special experiences with God at their baptism. Many others just get wet, and notice no "Spiritual" manifestation of any kind. Whatever your experience was or will be is as valid as any other. 

What if I was baptized as a child? Because baptism testifies to a personal decision that the old life has died and new life with Christ has begun, it's valid if that's what it meant to you when you were baptized. Otherwise, why not do it again now that you know what it means? 

How can I be baptized? You don't need a professional minister or a church building. Baptism is even more meaningful when spouses baptize each other or their children. There's nothing special about the water. Any lake, river, creek, pool, ocean, spa or bathtub will do. If you can't be immersed in water for any reason, pouring or even sprinkling are totally acceptable. What is crucial is the condition of your heart. Baptism is meaningless if you don't believe in Jesus as your Savior. Once you believe, any other believer simply says, "I baptize in the name of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit". Then, you get wet! Of course, if someone prays or if you want to say what Jesus has meant to you, great! If you give us your name, address, the date of your baptism and a few words about Jesus in your life, we'll send you a baptism certificate. 

2.  Meaning Of The Holy Communion:

What Is Communion? A special time we take together to remember what Jesus did for us. Jesus set the example on the night he was betrayed. We share _____ and the C___ to remember His sacrifice for us. The bread represents His ____. The cup represents His _____, poured out for the ___________ of sins. Mt 26:26-29: "While they were eating, Jesus took _____, gave thanks and broke it, and gave it to his disciples, saying, "Take and eat; this is my ____." 27Then he took the ___, gave thanks and offered it to them, saying, "Drink from it, all of you. 28This is my _____ of the covenant, which is poured out for many for the ___________ of sins. 29I tell you, I will not drink of this fruit of the vine from now on until that day when I drink it anew with ___ in my Father’s kingdom."
