2011 BBQ & Baptism Recap+Photos

Community, News

Last Thursday we had the privilege and honor of holding our first baptisms as a newly forming church in the heart of downtown Seattle. Simply speaking, it was a powerful night. There were testimonies of God’s grace, great food and six baptisms. What a night! God has not called us to plant this church in order to merely build a great church – but to build a great city, from the avenues to the alley ways. That happens as individual lives are changed by Jesus and sent into the city armed with His message and mercy. Baptism marks that change and for that we rejoice. I can’t wait to do it again. He is faithful…and there’s more to come.

For those who are following us, thanks for your prayers and support. We invite you to view the slideshow below to get a snapshot of our time together on that beautiful Seattle summer night last week.

“Now to him who is able to do far more abundantly than all that we ask or think, according to the power at work within us, to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, forever and ever. Amen” Ephesians 3:20-21
