Whole new perspective

24 Oct

One of the greatest experiences we get to share at Long Hollow Baptist Church (@longhollow) is the Baptisms. The part that I enjoy the most is not only do the pastors baptize the people, but so do dads! No fancy robes, no fancy prepared words, no fanfare.. Just a profession of faith from the young person that they have trusted Jesus Christ as their personal savior.
After growing up in traditional baptist churches in upstate NY, this is quite a refreshing experience. There is nothing that compares with the expression on a dads face when he lowers his child into the water and pulls them out, knowing that his child is going through this baptism as a public confession of faith in Christ.
