Church Home By: Frances M. McCrory-Meservy October 1978
Even though we loved the people in the Non Denomination Church, we did not feel it was where God wanted us. We felt led to join First Baptist Church (SBC) Nederland TX.
The pastor felt like Al should be baptized again. Al felt God accepted his first baptism because God knew what was in his heart. He didn't see anything wrong with being baptized again though and agreed.
David and Stephanie had made a profession of faith in the Mormon Church and were Baptized there. They agreed to be re-baptized.
I had been a member of the Baptist Church since I was a kid and could simply move my letter. I wanted to make a public statement against the Mormon Church (my way of making a complete break with them) and requested baptism also.
Al, Stephie, Davie and I were all re-baptized together.
Acts 8:35-38 Then Philip opened his mouth, and beginning at this Scripture, preached Jesus to him. Now as they went down the road, they came to some water. And the eunuch said, "See, here is water. What hinders me from being baptized?" Then Philip said, "If you believe with all your heart, you may." And he answered and said, "I believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God." So he commanded the chariot to stand still. And both Philip and the eunuch went down into the water, and he baptized him.
Mat 3:14-15 And John tried to prevent Him, saying, "I need to be baptized by You, and are You coming to me?" But Jesus answered and said to him, "Permit it to be so now, for thus it is fitting for us to fulfill all righteousness." Then he allowed Him.
