Baptism of Amber Schmidt
I was very fortunate to grow up in a loving Christian home. I came to know Jesus at a young age through Sunday School classes, Vacation Bible School and attending a Lutheran elementary school. I really begin to make my faith my own when I was in college. I realized that no one was expecting me to go to church or attend campus ministry events but that I really did desire that personal relationship with Jesus.
I have thought about being baptized for some time and have now decided to take this public step to declare my faith in Jesus to the church community. My life has been changed by what Christ has done for me and I want to share this joy-filled life with those around me. I am encouraged by Hebrews 10:23, “Let us hold unswervingly to the hope we profess, for he who promised is faithful.”
