Baptism is a fundamental part of the Christian faith, as the New Testament’s primary symbol and expression of our new life together in Christ. As Paul writes, there is one body, one Spirit, one hope, one Lord, one faith, and one baptism (Eph 4:4-5). Since its beginnings, the church has baptized those who have become disciples of Christ, committed to him, his community, and his cause. GCCC baptizes people the day before Easter, April 11 this year, which culminates a seven-week season of preparation (including four class sessions).
