I heard a great quote the other day. Christopher Reeve said this. "Either you decide to stay in the shallow end of the pool or you go out into the ocean." Being baptized is essentially making the decision to no longer play in the shallow waters of your faith but go deep. One of the first steps in becoming a disciple of Jesus is to be baptized. I think this is where Jesus beckons each one of us; off the sandy beach where we can play it safe, into the depths where we experience Him the most. So if you've been playing in the shallows for too long, maybe it's time to take the next step as a fully devoted follower of Jesus. 

We can baptize you anytime, in fact we just baptized someone in a smaller more intimate setting in our back-yard pool, so if being baptized in front of a ton of people always intimidated you, or held you back, please know we will do our best to remove these unnecessary hurdles.

If you want to learn more about being baptized please talk to your Simple Church Leader, Deep Stream Teacher or set up a coffee with Pastors Darcy or Kenda. Contact Darcy at darcyr@intheriver.ca or Pastor Kenda at kendar@intheriver.ca
