Anthony & Lincoln Markwell's Baptism

One of the most beautiful things we get to witness as a church body is the baptism of a parent followed immediately by the baptism of one of their children. The chance we all have to lead by example for our own children (or the children in our lives) is one we pray we never take for granted. 

On April 2nd, 2023, we saw God working in two generations at once. Anthony Markwell was baptized by John Simons in the name of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. Then, Anthony turned to baptize his son, Lincoln. Anthony tells us:

"I accepted Jesus as my Savior when I was 10 years old at Church camp. I confessed that I am a sinner and Jesus is my Lord and Savior. I have been through many battles in my 41 year old life that actually brought me closer to Jesus!"

Anthony also shares this beautiful story of Lincoln's moment of salvation: 

"Lincoln expressed a desire to ask Jesus into his heart last year. On May 8th, 2022, sitting in his room with his Dad and Mom, Lincoln prayed the sinner's prayer and confessed his sins, claimed Jesus as his Savior, and asked Him to be the Lord of his life."

What a beautiful pair of testimonies that glorify our great God. We pray that His will be done throughout all generations.
