Great is the baptism that lies before you: the ransom of captives, the forgiveness of sins, the death of sin, the regeneration of the soul, the garment of light, the holy perpetual seal, a chariot to heaven, the delight of paradise, a welcome into the kingdom, the gift of adoption.
-Cyril of Jerusalem

Water tells the story: whether the creation story, or the Exodus, or Jesus’ life, or the early Christian   movement, you can’t tell the Christian story without water. This January and February, we’re going to be reflecting on the practice of baptism by immersing ourselves in the water-stories in  Scripture, as they portray to what God does for us in  Jesus- freeing us, making us new, healing us, answering our deep thirsts- and what it means to be Jesus’ community and share in his mission. So whether you’re just beginning to consider faith, or are a devoted follower of Jesus, wade in the water with us at FPC as we experience the cleansing grace of Christ.
