Baptism Service

We will hold baptism services in the sanctuary during both services on September 27th & October 4th.

Pastor Ken will hold informational meetings about Baptism in the sanctuary after both services on September 13 & 20th. We encourage you to attend one of these meetings if you are interested in being baptized. If you are unable to attend the meeting with Pastor Ken, please contact the church office at slefc@slefc.org or 262-742-2366.

Water baptism is a beautiful picture of what our Lord has done for us. As we are completely immersed in the water, we symbolize burial with our Lord; we are baptized into His death on the cross and are no longer slaves to self or sin (Romans 6:3–7). When we are raised out of the water, we are symbolically resurrected—raised to new life in Christ to be with Him forever, born into the family of our loving God (Romans 8:16). Water baptism also illustrates the spiritual cleansing we experience when we are saved; just as water cleanses the flesh, so the Holy Spirit cleanses our hearts when we trust Christ.
