The First Baptist Church of Bennington, VT, will observe a service of Christian baptism on Sunday, October 16, 2011 at 9:30 AM. The congregation celebrates the baptism of Christopher Redding, a high school student and son of Paul and Tarah Redding of Bennington. All are welcome to worship.
For Christians, baptism is a sacred ritual following the example set by Jesus and the early Christians. Among Baptists, baptism signifies the acceptance of the Christian message by the person requesting to be baptized. Baptists are so named due to their historic commitment to baptism occurring by the full immersion of the person to be baptized. After the service, the minister will be available to explain more about baptism and the faith journey that leads to this day in the life of a follower of Christ.
