NEW SERMONS posted 7/25/16. Check the Resources tab.
THOUGHT FOR THE WEEK: If baptism is a mere “outward sign of an inward grace” or “public profession of faith”, ask yourself these questions. Why did Jesus submit to baptism, Matthew 3:13-17? Why were He and his disciples baptizing, John 2:22 and 4:1-2? Why did He command his apostles to go into the world and baptize, Matthew 28:19? Why did Jesus say only those who believed and were baptized would be saved, Mark 16:16? Why did Peter command those in Acts 2 to be baptized? Why does virtually every conversion in the book of Acts include baptism? Why, even after the Holy Spirit fell on Cornelius and his household did Peter command them to be baptized, Acts 10:44-48? Why does Paul say that we were baptized into Christ and have put on Christ through baptism, Galatians 3:27? Why does Peter say that as Noah and his family were saved through water so we are saved through baptism in 1 Peter 3:20-21? If baptism, immersion, is an elective of little importance, why do so many scriptures speak of it? Think about it.
If you are not a Christian (see the ABOUT YOU page), becoming a follower of Christ is the most important decision you will ever make. The Susquehanna church of Christ is a group of individuals who seek to worship God together according to His will, revealed to us in His word, the Bible. We believe that Bible study will lead us into greater understanding of what God wants of us. Though lots of denominations will tell you they teach the truth of God’s word, they cannot all be right when they teach doctrines that contradict each other. We invite you to consider the material you find here, and most importantly, weigh it against what is found in the scriptures. Our hope and prayer is that you will find the information here to be not only of benefit but also of truth. If we can be of help in any way in your search, please contact me. One more thing. Susquehanna church of Christ is a non-denominational church. You will notice that the “c” in church is not capitalized. The reason is that it is a description not a title or proper name. We are simply members of the church which Jesus built, Matthew 16:18. If you are a Christian, we hope the material here will be of benefit to you and will stimulate your thinking. If there is any way in which we may be of help, please contact me. Sincerely, Scott Long email@example.com
