Preparing for Baptism
Right Now Media
Our desire is to develop fully devoted followers of Christ who make disciples. In light of that vision, we are very passionate about helping every person who attends CMBC to take their next step. No matter where you are on your spiritual journey, there is always another step to take towards being fully devoted in your following of Christ. There is no one prescription for spiritual growth because everyone is different. But there are some basic areas to consider. It is our desire that each person intentionally participates with God and others in this transforming process. We invite you to consider what’s offered at CMBC and how that may be used by God to mature you in the faith.
Baptism is important, but it is not salvation. Baptism should be among the first steps of a new believer’s walk in obedience to the Lord. The questions and answers on this review sheet will help you more thoroughly understand baptism.
CMBC is always looking for ways to serve you as you live out your faith through the week. We are offering you free access to an exciting video library called “Right Now Media.” It’s essentially the Netflix of video Bible studies, giving you instant access to small group Bible studies, thousands of great videos for kids, youth, parents, married couples, and more. You can view these videos from your phone, tablet, computer, or other wireless enabled devices. To begin using Right Now Media, simply send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org requesting an account. Our office staff will respond with detailed instructions and login information for you.
