Invitation to Christ
Sisters and brothers in Christ, grace and peace to you in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ. We write to invite you on a spiritual journey to explore the deep and joyful waters of baptism.
As members of the Sacraments Study Group of the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.), we are convinced that a rediscovery of the gift and the call of our baptism can transform the church for ministry in the 21st century. We believe that the Christian life, engaged as a life of discipleship springing from baptism, can help to center and unify the church around its foundational calling from the risen Christ, to “go and make disciples” (Matthew 28:19).
In summer 2006, on our recommendation, the General Assembly voted to call all our congregations “to renewal, through Word and Sacrament, of our life together in Jesus Christ, by engaging in practices that deepen baptismal life and discipleship.”
