Dear Brothers and Sisters,
Due to the rapidly changing times and uncertainty of the Coronavirus epidemic, the elders have decided to cancel all services and activities on Sunday, March 15th, 2020 and the Wednesday Evening Prayer Service on March 18th, 2020. This pause will give us additional time to determine how to proceed over the next few weeks. We are not closing down for any length of time, but we are adjusting to the needs of the hour.

In some online discussions to our Open Letter to our Credobaptist and Paedobaptist Brethren, we were challenged, in a friendly way, by a Credobaptist brother concerning the efficacy of baptism. While we agreed with much of his feedback, I believe it would be helpful to provide some of my comments in response to the question of efficacy.
If we are not careful we can distort the difference between the efficacy of baptism, the proper subjects of baptism, and the true type of baptism. There is a real danger in confusing these three things even if the consequences are unintended.
