Each Sunday that we have baptisms at Ridge Church, it becomes my new favorite Sunday. I love seeing people take their next step in their journey as a follower of Jesus.
This past Sunday we baptized three people with more this coming Sunday!
Every baptism is a person with a story. And every story is someone’s life being changed forever.
Sunday we heard the story of Evageline who thought she had given her life to Jesus early in life but realized later that she only went through the motions but never truly committed her life to Jesus. After coming to Ridge, she said she repented of her sin, gave her whole life to following Christ and took her next step in baptism this past Sunday.
There was Aiden, who as a young boy, knew Jesus was calling him to be His. Sunday when he was baptized, he shot up out of the water like a man who knew all that he had been forgiven of.
Then there is John. John came to the Ridge reluctantly as all-out atheist. But as John would soon find out, when the Holy Spirit draws you into God, you just can not resist. John gave his life to Christ and baptized.
We had a chance to sit down with John to hear his story. His story is a reminder to us that God can literally save anyone. And when he does, it’s hard to keep that kind of good news to yourself.
“It’s time to take a stand and show the world, my faith has changed and my heart has been opened.”
