Stories of Baptism


“There is one body and one Spirit, just as you were called to one hope when you were called; one Lord, one faith, one baptism; one God and Father of all, who is over all and through all and in all.”
– Ephesians 4:4-6

Reading the baptism stories we’ve collected over the past few months has been a reminder of the diversity of experiences with baptism people at Granite Springs have had as well as the things that unite those experiences. Some were baptized as infants, others later in life. Some were baptized in a river, others in a church building. Some were immersed, some were sprinkled. The details may be different, but we share a common story. When we remember our baptism, we remember that we are chosen, loved, forgiven, made new, and welcomed into a community that stretches around the world!

What’s your baptism story? What does baptism mean to you? Do you have questions about baptism? If you haven’t been baptized, what might it mean for you to be baptized? We’d love to collect even more stories and pictures of baptisms to use as we continue to explore how remembering our baptism shapes our understanding of who we are. Click here to share.
