Since the Bible tells us to baptize, Abiding Savior is happy to baptize any children or adults in the community. Simply phone us at 763-241-9444 or email us to set up a day and time.
Baptisms can occur either in worship services on Sunday morning or privately at any time throughout the week. There is no cost for a baptism at Abiding Savior.
Why be baptized? God says that through baptism, children and adults receive many blessings, including the Holy Spirit which strengthens and gives faith, new life, and forgiveness.
Even newborn children need baptism because they are sinful and need baptism (Psalm 51:5), they can and do believe, and Jesus’ command to baptize all nations includes them (Matthew 28:19).
Getting married is one of the great blessings that God has given us in this life. Our congregation is here to bring God’s Word to such joyous occasions. We will handle the weddings where the bride or groom is a member, or where the couple is interested in membership in our congregation.
When those getting married are not members they must agree to attend a Bible Information class to study what the Bible says. At the completion of that course, individuals can decide whether they wish to join our congregation or not.
Every couple must meet with Pastor Heuer and talk about wedding arrangements and have several sessions of premarital counseling. These meeting are also opportunities for Pastor Heuer to get to know the couple so that we can make the service and sermon complement the couple. Everyone should contact the church to set a date before other plans with halls, etc. are made, to make sure the day and Pastor Heuer are available.
We offer Christian counseling to our members and anyone in the community.
Pastor Heuer would be happy to talk about how the Bible gives answers to specific problems of life. Call us at 763-241-9444 or email us to set up an appointment.
