In those days Jesus came from Nazareth of Galilee and was baptized by John in the Jordan. And just as he was coming up out of the water, he saw the heavens torn apart and the Spirit descending like a dove on him. And a voice came from heaven, “You are my Son, the Beloved; with you I am well pleased. Mark 1:9-11
If you would like to learn about our beliefs regarding the Sacrament of Baptism, we’ve written a short whitepaper.
Before he began his public ministry, Jesus was baptized as a way of setting an example for those who would follow him. It is through the events of Jesus’ baptism that we are, therefore, able to learn what baptism also means for us. Just as baptism marked the beginning of Jesus’ ministry, baptism also marks the beginning of new kind of life for those who follow him. It is a life that is marked by the presence of the Holy Spirit, God’s blessing and acceptance, and a renewed sense of family.
