“Therefore, we have been buried with him by baptism into death, so that, just as Christ was raised from the dead by the glory of the Father, so we too might walk in newness of life.” (Romans 6:3–11)
Through baptism, we are a new creation. We are heirs of the marvelous treasure of eternal life. The Holy Spirit’s cleansing power begins the work of sanctification in us. Through Spirit-filled lives, we become shining lights for others who are journeying with us. The Triune God is fully present in our lives. Our baptismal identity means that we are claimed by God and marked with the cross of Christ forever!
