“Therefore we have been buried with Him through baptism into death, so that as Christ was raised from the dead through the glory of the Father, so we too might walk in newness of life.”
Romans 6:4 (NASB)
Grace Church turned 11 years old this weekend and what a special time it was celebrating familytogether! The beauty of the pure gospel of grace taking over a community of people is overwhelming. Grace allows you to love well, to experience an abundance of joy and to walk in freedom over the things the world strives to declare over you. It shifts your perspective to the ONE who gave everything to be with you. When you understand the magnitude of the cross, you can't help but respond.
Chase, Luke, Leilani and Princess made the decision to get baptized on Sunday --- an outward expression of the newness of life that they have experienced in Jesus. From death to life. Complete transformation. A New Creation. The roar or cheering and clapping very quickly erupted as these Jesus followers were lifted from the water. The visual never gets old.
It has been an amazing 11 years as a church family and we are eager and expectant for what God has waiting in our future. We love you, Grace Church. Thank you, Jesus, for all you've done!
