We want to serve our community by proclaiming the hope and forgiveness found in Jesus Christ.

John the Baptist testifies that Jesus is the Lamb of God, who takes away the sin of the world - the very Son of God, on whom the Holy Spirit rested as His Baptism. As a faithful servant, John sets an example of humility and reverence for us. The One whose sandal John was unworthy to untie became the Suffering Servant, who bore all our sins.

The next day he saw Jesus coming toward him, and said, “Behold, the Lamb of God, who takes away the sin of the world! This is he of whom I said, ‘After me comes a man who ranks before me, because he was before me.’ I myself did not know him, but for this purpose I came baptizing with water, that he might be revealed to Israel.” And John bore witness: “I saw the Spirit descend from heaven like a dove, and it remained on him. I myself did not know him, but he who sent me to baptize with water said to me, ‘He on whom you see the Spirit descend and remain, this is he who baptizes with the Holy Spirit.’ And I have seen and have borne witness that this is the Son of God.” - John 1:29-34

What happened after the baptism of Jesus was startling and completely unexpected. The entire Trinity was revealed when the Father’s voice declared Jesus to be His beloved Son and the Spirit descended on Him. Jesus’ baptism marked the beginning of His earthly ministry and anticipated His death on the cross. Christ chose to be baptized to show us that He was taking the punishment for sinners. Because He is our substitute, we don’t need to fear God’s wrath, for we are washed clean by the blood of the lamb who prepare the waters of Baptism for us.

The Magi brought presents fit for a king to Bethlehem, but Jesus is no ordinary King. He is the “King Most Wonderful” as Bernard of Clairvaux, who lived some 1,100 years ago, expressed it in poetic verse. Today we bring our gifts and come to worship that King, rejoicing in His blessed rule among us.
