How Do I Define Myself?


We define ourselves in many different ways. Some make their appearance the defining aspect of their lives. Others base their identity on the amount of money they have or their accomplishments. And still others might say, “My life is defined by my family.”

It very much is an important question. How we answer determines our priorities, how we will spend our time, money and efforts. We will base our sense of happiness and value on whether or not we are the person we want to be.

If you have received Christian baptism, it’s probably been a long time since you’ve thought about that event. It’s probably been even longer, if ever, that you have considered your identity as a person as being defined by your baptism. But that is exactly the case when you stop to consider what baptism is and how God works through it.

Are you satisfied with your definition of yourself? Most of us never really get to that point. We always have a few regrets and lots of uncertainties. Join us for one of our weekend services. You are going to be surprised by how your baptism defines you. But you are going to be absolutely shocked by what a powerful and positive difference God’s definition of your life can be.

Worship service times: Saturday: 6:00 pm, Sunday: 9:00 am & 10:30 am.
