Today we had our first baptism since we launched in August. Baptism is always very exciting to me because it is such a beautiful picture of Christ, His sacrifice on the cross, and new life in Him. If you've ever wondered why Christians baptize, I encourage you to check out the podcast.
Next week we begin a seven week series about the very simple, but difficult issues that new believers always face called Discipleship 101. Other members of the staff will get an opportunity to teach during this series and I'm very excited that they are willing to share their hearts. You will be floored by the passion in these guys. I encourage you to be there for this next series if you've ever had any questions about everyday life as a believer.
Just a reminder to Oasis. Unleash is coming up on March 4th and we need to know by this coming Sunday if you would like to go. I encourage anyone who can possibly go to please make it a priority. I promise you that you will be amazed at the inspiration and passion that flows out of New Spring church. I'm so excited to get to share a little next week about how Unleash conference helped to inspire the existence of Oasis Church.
Oasis, also don't forget that we have Movies in the park coming up and we also have our public launch coming this September!
