The waters of Christian baptism represents our passing through the raging waters of sin and death, and we are saved through those “waters” by Jesus; the grace that we receive by faith in him. As we journey through the season of Lent we should take the time to grow in our love and faith for Jesus.

A great song to listen to before listening to the Scriptures and today’s message. Oceans (Where Feet May Fail) by Hillsong. 

We begin our time of worship by reading from Psalm 25:1-10

Pastor Keith Griswold shares a message based on scripture found in Genesis 9:8-17 and Mark 1:9-15.

Noah’s story starts in Genesis 7
  • Genesis 7:9
  • Genesis 7:11
We see corruption and violence in the world today and we know it’s not the way that God intended it to be, and we ask…
  • Mark 10:17
  • Acts 16:30

WHAT DOES IT MEAN TO BE SAVED?

  • Mark 10:21
  • Acts 16:31
  • Romans 10:9-10
  • Acts 16:33-34

To believe is to hear God make a promise, and then to respond to that promise with our actions.

BEING SAVED IS A PROMISE GIVEN & RECEIVED

Our God is a promise-making God.
  • John 3:16
  • 1 John 1:9
  • John 15:7-8
  • Ephesians 4:15-16

SALVATION IS AN ARK OF SAFETY

  • Mark 1:14-15
  • Acts 2:38

Repentance: Undergoing a change of mind and heart and making God the center of your life.’

Here’s a really fitting song for today’s scriptures – Beneath the Waters (I Will Rise) by Brooke and Scott Ligertwood.
