Sermon Series:  Obeying Jesus: 7 Commands for Every Disciple
Sermon Title:  Buried with Christ, Raised to Life (2 of 7)
Scripture Reading:  Matthew 28:18-20; Acts 2:38; Romans 6:1-11

`

In his last moments on earth with his core disciples, Jesus said, “Go and make disciples… teaching them to obey all that I have commanded.” So, what are these commands that sincere, authentic followers of Jesus should be obeying? In our Obeying Jesus: 7 Commands for Every Disciple series, we will look closely at the teachings and practices that Jesus said are basic and foundational to faithfully following him. 

Jesus was baptized by John in the Jordan River in order to publicly identify with the Kingdom that is marked by repentance and heart change. Later, Jesus commands his own disciples to baptize in his name to identify with him as Lord and outwardly signify a real inner change.

In Buried with Christ, Raised to Life (2 of 7), pastor David will help us to see why baptism is not an option for disciples. Listen to David and view the slides here.
