Enduring the Race: A Five-Part Series on Baptismal Remembrance

Baptism is a mark of the beginning rather than the end of our journey with God. This five-part series illuminates the meaning and significance of baptism and shows how baptismal remembrance offers the hope and assurance needed to endure the race. Note: This password-protected article is available for free access until July 15, 2019.

Baptismal renewal may be personal and communal. Incorporating baptismal liturgies in worship services can be creative.

The Great Commission calls renewal-seeking churches to enter the web of anamnetic remembering: I am because of who Christ is. I am because we are. I am baptized.
