In Acts, Peter says "Repent and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of sins, and you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit," (Acts 2:38).
On Sunday, March 30, we held a baptism right outside the UNC Ballroom. Pierre and Karl made a proclamation of their commitment to Jesus by being baptized. Their UCM family gathered around a (heated!) baptismal trough right in the middle of the campus to support these two guys. It was exciting to share in such a special and important part of their lives, but it was equally as exciting and wonderful to hear how much of a role the UCM community at UBCO has played in both of their journeys with Christ. They were both baptized by people within UCM who have been mentors and friends to them.
Thank you to the friends and family who came out to support Karl and Pierre as they took this step and thanks to God who has been working in their lives!
