gilbert baptisms a huge success

Last night, seven people got baptized over at Chuck & Kathi Bishop's house and about 100 people came to celebrate with them. The following people were baptized:
  • Kevin Carlisle
  • Jodi Dennis
  • Julie Patrick
  • Lisa Ahnen
  • Nicole Roehl
  • Dennis Roehl
  • Ron Taylor
It was a fun night and a powerful time of hearing real stories about how God saved these friends. One of the highlights for me was getting to meet Ron Taylor's dad, who had been faithfully praying for his son's salvation for 40+ years and flew in to celebrate his baptism.

The Scripture that I've been thinking about since last night is 1 Corinthians 6:9-11, which says "Do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived: neither the sexually immoral, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor men who practice homosexuality, nor thieves, nor the greedy, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor swindlers will inherit the kingdom of God. And such were some of you. But you were washed, you were sanctified, you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and by the Spirit of our God."
