Solace - Baptism

Mon, April 28, 2014 6:00 PM

This is the first annual time for the SNU Christian Community to baptize students who have come to faith through the ministries here. It will become a tradition. It's preferred that a student is baptized in a local church they belong to. We believe it to be theologically acceptable if they choose to be baptized here on campus. We ask that each student invite and consult their families to be part of this celebration. We also welcome students to invite local pastors to join us in this baptism. While SNU is an expression of the Church and while it is also a Christian Community, we realize that the front line of ministry takes place in the local church. However, we believe we are compelled to offer the sacrament of baptism to students who have initiated their discipling journey, and are growing in their faith through the ministries here or are asking us to baptize them for various reasons. We will encourage each baptismal candidate to continue to engage in the local church. We believe this will only strengthen their resolve to get involved in the Church of Jesus Christ.
