Down By The River 2017
Cherryville Baptist Church baptized eight believers on Sunday, July 30th, in the South Branch of the Raritan River near Millbrook Farm.
Pastor Tom Roberts shared the gospel message with 115 people who came out to worship and to celebrate with the baptismal candidates. "What joy it is when believers signify their faith in Jesus by obeying their Lord's command to follow Him in the waters of baptism.
Baptism is a public picture of the inner transformation that was begun in the believer's life when he or she trusted Jesus' sacrifice on the cross for the forgiveness of sins," said Pastor Roberts.
Cherryville Baptist Church was founded in 1849. Since that time the Good News of Jesus Christ has been the center of our life together. We submit ourselves to the authority of the Bible. In all of our worship, study, and fellowship activities we seek to lift up Jesus Christ, and to live out His commandment that we love one another. We are a family of faith, and we covenant together to rejoice with those who rejoice, and to bear one another's burdens. We seek to worship God in Spirit and in Truth, as we share God's love by baptizing and teaching in the name of Jesus.
