“There is one body and one Spirit, just as
you were called to the one hope of your calling,
one Lord, one faith, one baptism, one
God and Father of all, who is above all and
through all and in all.”
– Ephesians 4:4-6

Main Point

We were baptized in the name of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit. We belong to the family of God and are inheritors of eternal life. So what? In baptism you were adopted into the family of God, named and claimed, and sealed with the mark of Christ forever. This is good news! Will you tell others or keep it to yourself? Will you pass on the
faith? What’s next?
