Holiday Worship Services
The holidays are almost upon us. Please join us for our upcoming worship services:
Saturday 6 January 7:00 PM
Epiphany Service
From the Pastor
Baptized For Us
At Epiphany God reveals himself to us decisively in his Son Jesus Christ. He does so by a revelation from heaven, which is ripped open after the Son undergoes baptism (Mark 1:10). That same revelation comes to us as we undergo baptism, because baptism gives us the Spirit who descends from the father and we hear the voice say you are my son, my beloved one. What great blessings we get from the Lord who was baptized for us.
