Congratulations to the following YaYAs who will be baptised/confirmed tomorrow:

Lingyan, Guijia, Dorcas, Sandra, Dorothea, Ming Yee, Elaine, Joshua, Jerone, Kelda, Letazia, Sean. 

Baptism is an important decision to follow Christ unto death. It means making the choice where I die to myself and live to Christ. 

Roman 6:4 says “We were therefore buried with him through baptism into death in order that, just as Christ was raised from the dead through the glory of the Father, we too may live a new life.”

When we are baptised in Christ’s death, we die with Christ so that we may be born again into a new life. When we dip our heads under the water, our old man is buried and being submerged. And when we rise again, we step into a new life.

Jesus said “Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you”(Matthew 28:19-20). Teaching follows baptism. When the church baptise people, we are also making a commitment that we are prepared to teach them to obey Jesus and becoming His disciples.

You have stepped into a new life and you have been enrolled in the most prestigious School of Jesus. Well Done!!
