Youth Conference Life's Storm: Who Is Your Rock?



The International Baptist College is holding a youth conference on November 14-15th with the theme: Life's Storm, Experiencing God's Peace in the Midst of Problems.

"Parents’ divorce, loss of a loved one, or just the everyday difficulties of life can make us feel like we are drowning under the crushing weight of a demanding world. Navigating through the storms of life may seem impossible, but God’s Word provides a firm anchor for us. Like the apostle Peter, when we focus on the turbulent waters around us, we will sink, but when we keep our eyes on Christ, He will keep us from going under. Throughout life’s journey, tempests will arise to knock our ship off course. We need to hold fast to the words of the One who can calm all seas."

The keynote speaker is Pastor Kip Doan from Faith Baptist Church in Longmont, CO. Several other pastors from the area will teach workshops throughout Friday. Teens interested in music also have the option of participating in a choir during the conference.

The cost of the conference is $50 if registered by October 18th. The cost includes overnight accommodations and meals (since we are local to the conference, we will plan on not staying at the school's facilities).

$15 is due when when you register for the conference. For more information about the conference, or to register, visit the website here.

  1. WILL A NONBELIEVERS BAPTISM WASH AWAY SINS? BY STEVE FINNELL

    Do nonbelievers receive forgiveness from sins when they are baptized in water?

    If atheists and other nonbelievers are baptized in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and the Holy Spirit do they receive forgiveness from sins? Of course not.

    John 8:24 Therefore, I said to you, Your will die in your sins; for if you do not believe that I am He, you will die in your sins.(TBVOTNT)

    Water baptism alone does not wash away sins. Nonbelievers will die in their sins.

    Mark 16:16 He who has believed, and has been immersed, will be saved; but he who does not believe will be condemned.(TBVOTNT)

    Nonbelievers will be condemned.

    Acts 3:19 Repent, therefore, and turn again, in order that your sins may be blotted out, so that there may come seasons of refreshment from the presence of the Lord; (TBVOTNT)

    Water baptism that is not preceded by repentance is meaningless. There is no forgiveness without repentance. Repentance means to change from unbelief to belief. Repentance means to make a commitment to turn from sin and turn toward God.

    Acts 2:38 Then Peter said to them, Let each one of you repent and be immersed, in the name of Jesus Christ, in order to the remission of your sins; and you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit.(TBVOTNT)

    Atheists and other nonbelievers do not have their sins washed away by being immersed in water.

    Newborn babies and small children do not have their sins washed away by being immersed in water. Why? First they have not committed any sins and they are not guilty of sin. Second, if they were guilty of sin they are incapable of believing in Jesus as the Christ, the Son of the living God.

    Jesus did not know good from evil as a small child and neither do newborn children know right from wrong. Babies are not sinners, nor are they guilty of sin.

    Isaiah 7:14-16"Therefore the Lord Himself will give a sign: Behold, the virgin shall conceive and bear a Son, and shall call His name Immanuel. 15 "Curds and honey He shall eat, that He may know to refuse the evil and choose the good. 16 "For before the Child shall know to refuse the evil and choose good, the land that you dread will be forsaken by both her kings.(NKJV)

    There is an age of accountability.


    THERE WERE NO UNBELIEVERS BAPTIZED ON THE DAY OF PENTECOST NOR DID THE APOSTLES EVER BAPTIZE UNBELIEVERS.

    NOTE: (TBVOTNT-The Better Version of The New Testament by Chester Estes)
