Baptism by the Bay 2006 from National Community Church on Vimeo.
As some of you already know, I have chosen to study and follow Christ a few months ago. It has been a profound transition in my life and it continues to strengthen me the further along the path I get. Once a year my church, NCC, has a Baptism by the Bay event. As you can see from the video the participants are mostly adults who have made a conscious, informed choice to follow Christ (as opposed to getting baptized as an infant, which many of us were). I plan on doing this. But not until next year, 2011. I have decided to continue to attend NCC for one year before making this symbolic gesture. This will be my year of discovery. My year of seeking. My year of truth. I honestly want to do it this summer, but I feel in my heart that I'm not ready. It wouldn't be right for me to do it right now.
