Baptism as an act of faith

Baptism has many meanings in a society that has a Christian heritage but not necessarily a Christian development.  By that, I mean that for some, baptism is a social custom, instead of a sacrament of faith.  For some, baptism is an expected rite/right instead of an act of faith whereby we present ourselves, and our children, to God in faith, mindful of God’s promise to forgive and redeem us.

God makes promises – but until we believe those promises, they don’t mean much.  That’s where our faith comes in.

This message is based on Romans 4.1-17, and you can listen to it here.
