Baptisms in Seattle
Weekly we'll be sharing videos from Acts 29 churches that tell stories of the Gospel transforming the hearts of people, communities, and cities.
Below are stories of conversion and redemption, as told by people just prior to being baptized.
"Let us always long to hear the stories of grace in others' lives. Every conversion is the story of a blessed defeat." C.S. Lewis
"My heart was caught in [God's] grip.
It was vice-like and it hurt. But it hurt so good!"
Church: Downtown Cornerstone
Pastor: Adam Sinnett
Location: Seattle, WA
On August 16th, 2012, we had the privilege and honor of holding our second annual summer baptisms as a newly forming church in the heart of downtown Seattle. Simply speaking, it was an awesome evening. There were testimonies of God’s grace, great food and 12 baptisms. What a night!
God has not called us to plant this church in order to merely build a great church – but to build a great city, from the avenues to the alley ways. That happens as individual lives are changed by Jesus and sent into the city armed with His message and mercy. Baptism marks that change and for that we rejoice.
