Baptism

Christians are baptised as a sign that they have asked God to forgive their sins and that they want to live as God wants them to live.

It is an outward sign of commitment to God and belief in Jesus Christ as their Lord and Saviour.

Paula says: "My life was hard growing up and we didn't have much at all. I was persecuted by others as I grew for not having even the basic things everyone else had. Even though I didn't truly know God I always spoke to Him and He blessed me along the way. But life took its toll on me and I started to carry feelings I just couldn't get rid of, like sadness, bitterness and anger. I eventually turned to God and He freed me from the persecution and showed me the truth of Jesus Christ. I came to fully appreciate how Jesus died for us so that we may be saved. To be baptised signifies for me the death of my old self, my old life and all its persecutions, to be washed clean and reborn. A new person with a new life, a new outlook and a new purpose."
