Samuel Kerns Baptism Testimony

Samuel Kerns was baptized on July 17, 2016 in front of his parent’s church family. Following is his confession of faith in Christ. We pray that you are as encouraged as we are to see the continuing to prove Himself faithful and good.

“I am getting baptized because Jesus gives me grace. When I do something wrong Jesus forgives me. Jesus died on the cross for my sins and Acts 16:31 says ‘Believe in the Lord Jesus and you will be saved.’ By getting baptized I am showing everybody that I love Jesus, and that He has saved me from my sins.”

If reading this makes you wonder what baptism is and why anyone would even consider doing it…please contact us at office@greenvillegrace.org and allow us to answer your questions!
