This is Alex and I in the Y pool just before she was baptized. She was a little taken back by how excited we were for her.

In this moment Alex is confessing her faith in Jesus by saying the confession of Peter, “I believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of the Living God.”

This is what I call the “awkward” moment; Getting the hands and arms int he right place to do the baptism.

Romans 6:3-5 says, “Don’t you know that all of us who were baptized into Christ Jesus were baptized into his death? We were therefore buried with him through baptism into death in order that, just as Christ was raised from the dead through the glory of the Father, we too may live a new life. If we have been united with him like this in his death, we will certainly also be united with him in his resurrection.”

“This water symbolizes baptism that now saves you also—not the removal of dirt from the body but the pledge of a good conscience toward God. It saves you by the resurrection of Jesus Christ.” 1 Peter 3:21
