.: February 2006 --> We will never take it back

We will never take it back

» The quote at the top of the page is funny [context] but I'm very impressed with the message contained in St. James UCC's Top 10 Reasons to check out the United Church of Christ. If more churches were preaching this message, I have to think Christianity would have a better name among non-believers.

5. One God, One Faith, One Baptism for All
When we baptize you into our community, we promise that we will never take it back — no matter what you discover about yourself or what others discover about you along life's journey. We believe that big enough, strong enough and cleansing enough to last forever. We believe that everyone — old, young, straight, lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgendered, physically or emotionally challenged, rich or poor, sure or unsure, lost or found, Democrat or Republican has a place in the body of Christ. Baptism is like a badge that says, "you’re a full member of the church and no one can take that away from you."

Bonus: "Party Church". (via jc)
