JoJo, Logan, Mason, Brenden, Kyle, and Sam stood before the congregation June 7, 2015 and made their Public Profession of Faith!
The group had gone through Pastor Joel's class studying the core principles of faith and membership in the church in preparation. Each of these youth interviewed with the elders and were found to not only have a solid and mature faith in Jesus Christ, but were also determined to be committed followers ready to take their place with the communicate membership of those that had professed before them and be granted full membership in the church.
They were challenged with all but the last line of Jeremiah 6:16 which says "This is what the Lord says: "Stand at the crossroads and look; ask for the ancient paths, ask where the good way is, and walk in it, and you will find rest for your souls." This challenge made to the Israelites so many years before is as relevant today as it was then. Each was challenged to stand, or wait patiently and look, ask God for his ancient path planned for them, but then when God reveals that plan to act by walking in it and then enjoy the benefits by realizing the promise of rest, or peace for their souls."
God tells each of us to patiently wait on him and his timing, but when that time comes, we need to act. He also promises what will happen when we do!
What an awesome day of celebration at Pathway to realize the culmination of baptism promises made by parents and churches many years before! Listen to their answers now to questions from Pastor Joel in this video shown during the service.
We are so proud of each of you! Congratulations and Welcome!
