Religion

Baptism, an act of full immersion following Christ’s example, is undertaken by those spiritually mature enough to understand its profound, symbolic significance: resurrection to new life in Christ.

Politics

Churches should continually prioritize and monitor the progress in adequately representing the increasing racial and ethnic diversity of communities in local congregations and entities.

Views

The strong feature of Baptism is that prayers are not only led by a minister, but often by a local preacher - a lay person who has been trained and authorized to lead worship and preach.
