>Welcome to Christian Conversations! My name is G. Kevin Baker, and this blog is devoted to theological reflection on life and ministry. I am a pastor, writer, father of three, and committed follower of Jesus Christ.
The water image in the header is meant to be a reminder to all who comment or post here – that our lives and our conversations – indeed, our primary identity as believers is grounded in baptism.
Here is an excerpt from a sermon on baptism that may help frame our baptismal family conversations:
Baptism is the source of the Christian’s true identity; the only “vital records” really necessary in this world – better than any birth certificate, far superior to a any nine-digit social security number is the three word claim that can never be revoked, lost, or erased – CHILD OF GOD –revealing our primary identity not as a Brown, or a Baker, or a Johnson, or a Lopez – but first and foremost as a beloved child of God, a member of God’s family; as one claimed by God, birthed out of love, forgiven out of mercy, and transformed by grace.
Thanks for visiting and feel free to join the conversation in the comments.
