The celebration of Baptism on Easter day gives the Resurrection its true meaning and confirms the Hope we have in preaching the saving Gospel to all nations.
“Do you not know that all of us who have been baptized
into Christ Jesus were baptized into his death?
We were buried therefore with him by baptism into death,
in order that, just as Christ was raised from the dead
by the glory of the Father, we too might walk in newness of life.
For if we have been united with him in a death like his,
we shall certainly be untied with him in a resurrection like his.”
– Rom 6:3-5
After working and walking the mission field for the past six months, Pastor Dong Su Son, the shepherd of Grace Korean Church in Watauga and his congregation celebrated their first Easter and the first baptism within the small but growing congregation.
“Our Early morning prayers at 6:00 am are followed by a daily devotion and the study of the word and regular fellowship. These prayers are offered seven days a week and are the hallmark of Grace Korean Church” Pastor Son said.
We give thanks and glory to God for Pastor Son’s wife and children who are very much involved the music ministry, Bible Study, and teaching ESL classes.(Pastor Son is currently in the LCMS Colloquy Program in Irving, CA and St. Louis, MO.)
