IT'S ALL ABOUT JESUS
This is not surprising, since He’s the most famous person in all of human history. More songs have been sung to Him, artwork created of Him, and books written about Him than anyone who’s ever lived. Even our calendar is based on His life, dividing time before and after Him.
Naturally, someone this important will have fans and foes and a lot of people have an idea of who Jesus is. They may get this idea from TV or movies, maybe from past church experiences and Sunday School felt boards, from history books, or maybe from just hearsay. But just because we have ideas of who Jesus is doesn’t mean we actually know Jesus. At Cedarview Church, we’re all about Jesus—and the only way to get to know Jesus is to understand what the Bible says concerning Him, which includes what He said about Himself.

Matthew 28: 18–20: "Jesus came and told his disciples, 'I have been given complete authority in heaven and on earth. Therefore, go and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit. Teach these new disciples to obey all the commands I have given you. And be sure of this: I am with you always, even to the end of the age.'"
Acts 2:38: "Peter Replied: 'Each of you must turn from your sins and turn to God, and be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins. Then you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit.'"
On the day of your Baptism, the Pastor will ask you to give your story to the congregation and they usually include the following questions:
When did you accept the Lord? | How did that experience change your life? | What does Jesus mean to you?
Our Lord Himself gave us this Sacrament. Communion (or Eucharist) means the "Table of Thanksgiving." Here we remember that Jesus died on our behalf. At this table, we meet with our Saviour, look back upon His sacrifice, examine ourselves, confess our sins, renew our commitment to our Lord and His body the Church and anticipate the hope of His return.
