Today's an exciting day--Lizzy will be baptized today by Justin's dad! Ryan, Renee, Justin, and my sister Courtney are leading the music today (which I am really excited about), and I believe the above song, "City On Our Knees" by Toby Mac is one of the ones they're singing.
I know this might sound strange to some of y'all, because I think a good portion of Christian churches now practice a Believer's Baptism. However, the Lutheran church typically baptizes as infants, and then do Confirmation as teens, which is similar to the concept of a Believer's Baptism in terms of the profession of faith, and is also often somewhat similar to First Communion in the Catholic church.
This baptism and confirmation business is complicated, isn't it? Everybody does something differently--some churches sprinkle water, others dunk people completely. But you know what the beauty of it all is? In the grand scheme of things, how a church approaches baptism really isn't important. The only thing that is really important in the Christian faith is the belief that Jesus Christ came and died on the cross for our sins. And that it is because of Him that we receive eternal life.
