You did it! You finished the Journey Series! We want to encourage you to take a few next steps.
1. First is to be water baptized.
As declared in Luther’s Small Catechism, Baptism is not simple water only, but it is the water comprehended in God's command and connected with God's Word. That word is as declared, “Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit…” Baptism works forgiveness of sins, delivers from death and the devil, and gives eternal salvation to all who believe this, as the words and promises of God declare. “He who believes and is baptized will be saved; but he who does not believe will be condemned.” God has raised up faith in you and you responded and received that gift of salvation. As the man said to Phillip in Acts 8 after hearing about Jesus from the Scriptures, said, "what hinders me from being baptized? Matthew 28:19-20; Mark 16:16; Philippians 8:36
