Emily's Baptism

Yesterday was a significant day in the life of our eight year old.  Several months ago, she began asking us questions about baptism and decided that she wanted to tell the world with her words and actions that her faith lied only in God.  We attended a special presentation at our church called Jump Start and Emily heard how God loved her, sent his perfect son to die for her sins, and that by putting her faith and trust in him alone she would receive the gift of eternal life.  She went on to meet with the youth staff and express her desire to be baptized and explain why it was important to her. 
Last night, along with 9 other young children, Emily publicly professed her faith in God alone and was baptised by our pastor Sean Sey.  It was a very special night that she was able to share with our family.
Emily made this video that was played before she was baptized.

"For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, so that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life."
John 3:16
