Baptism Saves - Sunday Bible Class
Take the next 38 minutes and watch this past Sunday's Bible Class at Good Shepherd Lutheran Church in Brandon, MS. Sometimes we seem a little strange to people. Maybe this will help you understand that we're pretty much like everybody else. Our Faith has been around for a long time. It's the Faith and Practice of the majority of Christians for the past 2,000 years - but maybe it's new to you. Spend a little time here and get to know what we believe. We'd love for you to join us. We'd love for you to come and visit. Plan especially to attend our Bible Class on Sunday at 9:15 a.m. We don't always have THIS much fun, but we do enjoy our time in God's Word! We'd love to have you join with us in talking about the things here discussed. A Baptist minister chimed in, and we are glad. We'd like to keep the conversation going - and have a little fun in the process - as you'll see at the beginning of this video.
We apologize for the limited size of this video. Our pastor does all our web work and he's still learning! If some parts look too small on your browser, we've included graphics below.
Lastly, we appreciate that the words for being saved - both in I Peter 3:20 and I Peter 3:21 - are not exclusively used in Scripture for the eternal salvation that comes to us on account of Christ's death and resurrection. However, St. Peter's connecting the saving benefits of Baptism to the resurrection of Jesus is difficult to get around, in light of Our Lord's speaking of Baptismal regeneration in John 3, St. Paul's in Romans 6, Colossians 2 and Titus 3, as well as the doctrine and practice of the Church for the past 2,000 years. Please oexcuse any undue enthusiasm in the part of our pastor, as he gets excited at times. Please be sure that he'd be happy to visit with you on this topic. The following is genuinely meant to spark an ongoing discussion among Christians.
