Baptism: A Special Gift Of Freedom

If you have any questions about baptism, ‘What is Baptism‘ is held after every service on the first Sunday of the month!

Every person who takes the step of baptism has their reasons and motivations, but one thing is for sure: God works in amazing ways for this to happen.

It is always a very special moment when someone decides to take this very important step here and experiencing these moments of celebration as a community makes it all the more exciting.

This past Sunday, Veronica and her son Julian took the step of baptism and commit to following God. Our Story Team spoke to Veronica to learn more about all that went into that decision and her experience.

Story Team: What was the feeling like when you got baptized?

Veronica: It was overwhelming because I had so many feelings, but mostly peace and joy. I was just so happy that I was able to take that step and do it alongside my son. I felt so excited and just grateful for my HG family that are so instrumental in my journey with God.

Story Team: Who was there with you?

Veronica: My son Julian, and my Hoboken Grace family: Diana, Ana, Mark, Rachel, Sarah, Lorraine.

Story Team: For another Hoboken Grace Community member who may be thinking about taking this step, what would you say to them?

Veronica: I’ll just say: Do it! Don’t overthink as I did, I felt I was ready a while ago, but I didn’t think I had to do it. I realized that it’s a beautiful step in your faith journey, it’s a beautiful representation of who you are once you come out of the water, who your God is, and how amazing it feels to celebrate that in front of everyone.

Story Team: What made you take the step of baptism?

Veronica: I just felt in my heart that I didn’t need to keep pushing it back. I’ve been ready, and my relationship with God has grown stronger so I felt that I wanted to take this step. Also, it was my birthday last week and I wanted to give myself a gift: freedom. Freedom to be defined by Him, freedom to live a life that allows me to constantly seek Him, and freedom to love others well!
