Baptism - What's The Big Deal?
There tends to be a lot of confusion surrounding baptism. And while the topic often evokes strong emotions, it is not a subject in which people have much to draw from, other than their own experience. For this reason Andy Stanley takes the time to explore what the Bible has to say about baptism and how this informs our understanding of this universal Christian practice.
Think about the countless people who have shared in the Christian practice of baptism, from a remote tribe in Pakistan to a mega-church in Atlanta, Georgia. How does it make you feel when you realize you are connected in this way, not only with Christ, but also with Christians all over the world and throughout history?
