We believe we’re called to…
Enjoy God more than ever before,
Love one another more deeply than ever before,
& Care for our parish better than ever before, as WE JOIN JESUS IN HIS MINISTRY OF HEALING BROKENNESS IN OUR WORLD.
We believe that we’re ALL called to be His disciples and show His love to others. For additional information, call the church office: (419)289-0224 begin_of_the_skype_highlighting (419)289-0224 end_of_the_skype_highlighting.
At PSBC, baptism is a public expression of your acceptance of Jesus Christ as your Savior, and a public expression of your long-term desire to live in allegiance to Jesus Christ as Lord. Please call the church office at 419-289-0224 or e-mail at email@example.com if you would like to be baptized.
Your participation in the rich symbol of baptism is saying “no” to your sin nature and saying “yes” to Jesus Christ, and the new spiritual nature He gives to you. It is an expression of your love for Jesus Christ by obeying His commandment to be baptized.
Baptism is to be shared with your church family and friends. We live the Christian life together and openly.
We believe in baptism by triune immersion on the basis of your faith in Jesus as Savior and Lord. If in some other setting, you have already been baptized by immersion following your statement of faith, you may join the membership of PSBC without being baptized again.
The Lord Jesus has a special invitation for all of those who have accepted Him as Savior and Lord. He invites you to a special time of worship around His Communion Table. Because of His death for us on the cross and His resurrection, He has an intimate relationship with all who believe in Him. This relationship is expressed as you gather with other disciples of Christ at His Communion Table.
During the Communion Service, we re-enact the actions of Jesus with His disciples at the very first Lord’s Supper in the upper room of that house in Jerusalem.We will do this with tremendous joy in our hearts. He has saved us by His grace!
As He commanded us to do we:
- wash feet (symbolizing our cleansing from sin and our servant attitude).
- take part in a small meal (symbolizing our fellowship with Christ and with one another in the family of God).
- remember His sacrificial death for us as we partake of the elements of the bread (representing His body, broken for us) and the cup (representing His blood that He shed for us, to cover our sins).
