Monroe Baptism

December 01, 2002

Members of the Monroe, Wash., Church gathered in late summer on the shores of the Skykomish River for an old-fashioned baptism down by the riverside.

Hot weather and warm water provided ideal outdoor conditions, as 100 church and family members witnessed the baptism of six candidates who publicly confessed their faith in Christ and sealed their commitment with prayer and baptism, followed by a feast in their honor.

The service prompted many others to ask for baptism.
