HEARING THE WILL OF GOD
What I am about to say may shock some. I may even upset most of you who read this. But I hope that in reading this, you will hear my pastoral heart and not prejudge me before you’ve read it all — and prematurely assume that I am being unnecessarily pedantic or petty. I need to speak up about an issue that has been troubling me for some time.

“This is the way<, walk in it,”

Just as in any family household, God places authority within that household. Usually in a natural family that is the role of the parents. In a church it is its leadership comprised of pastors and elders, a management board, team and department leaders, and home-group leaders…[More]

Their next step is to publicly declare that decision by being water baptised in obedience to Christ’s command.

Please see one of our pastors or elders if you wish to be baptised.
