However much you pray and fast daily yet you are not baptized, you are still a sinner unless you take a step of getting committed to God through baptism. It is written in the book of Mark 16:16, “Whoever believes and is baptized will be saved, but whoever does not believe will be condemned.”
Matthew 28:19-20 says, “Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.” In this scripture, Jesus ordered his disciples to go and baptize all those who are not yet baptized because he had promised to be with them. We ought to preach the gospel of baptism to the nations so that many souls are won to the kingdom of God.
Baptism is a sign of devotion with God, when you are baptised, you are made one with your father in Heaven just as a husband gets married to his wife and they become one. Ephesians 4:4-6 says, “There is one body and one Spirit, just as you were called to one hope when you were called; one Lord, one faith, one baptism; one God and Father of all, who is over all and through all and in all.”
Visiting the Housebound/Hospital
If you wish a visit at home from a priest, or to arrange for an Extraordinary Minister to bring Holy Communion to someone who is housebound, please telephone the parish house.
If a member of your family is in hospital, please make sure that staff are aware that he/she is Catholic. If a patient wishes to receive a visit from a priest ask the ward staff to page the chaplain.
Bible verses about community
Christians are all part of the body of Christ and we all have different functions. Some of us are strong in this area and some are strong in that area. Some of us can do this and some of us can do that. We must use what God has equipped us with to work together and have fellowship with one another. As a community we must work together to advance God’s kingdom, encourage each other, build each other up, and we must bear each other’s burdens.
We must never isolate ourselves from other believers. If we do, then how can we aid others in their time of need and in our time of need how can others help us if we distance ourselves? Not only is it pleasing to God to see the body of Christ working together as one, but we are stronger together and we become more like Christ together than we do alone. Have fellowship with one another and you will truly see how important and awesome community is in your Christian walk of faith.
