    • "God so loved the world," John 3:14-21 March 15, 2018
      Gods love surpasses human boundaries God loves real sinners Such love in Christ is not bound or conditioned by mans response nor least of all dependent on it Gods love is unconditional as is seen Christ who died for all sinners That not all believe is not due to Gods lack of love but to mans rejection and disbelief

What do Lutherans believe about Holy Baptism?

Holy Baptism is a washing of water and the Word of God, a “washing of regeneration” (Titus 3:5), a “being born again” (John 3:3-8; 1 Peter 1:23).  Through the water applied with the Word of God, “in the Name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit” (Matthew 28:19), God gives new life and even salvation (1 Peter 3:21).  Just as no one “chooses” or “decides” to be born into this world, so in baptism, one does not “choose” or “decide” to be born again.  The new birth is the free gift of God, not of man (John 1:12-13; 1 John 5:1).  And that means that it is certain and sure, as is the forgiveness of sins, life, and salvation through faith in Christ!
