Baptised into Christ Jesus
In the New Testament that is a triumphant declaration: in parts of today’s church that canbe a gauntlet thrown down. But in this school the gauntlet will not be taken up.
This is a school about what God the Father, in Christ, through the Holy Spirit, has done in us. He has taken rebellious humanity, joined it to his crucified Son and washed it clean, filled it with his Spirit and set it as his own precious possession.
Instead of disputes about what the New Testament does not say, we will be seeing ‘the great things He has done’, and our expectation is that, as a result, there will be ‘great . . . rejoicing through Jesus the Son’.
