Hi there! That's so cool! :D :D I hope she is able to. BTW what is an Anabaptist vs. a  Mennonite vs. an affirming Baptist ? I'm confused. Are they related or in communion with the affirming Baptist Church?

Thank you,

Beck

I live in Sequim, on the peninsula.  My sister lived in Puyallup for a number of years. I remember going to the Puyallup Fair when I was younger.

There are a couple of Baptist churches in Puyallup. Here are the links:

If you're looking for a Bible-believing, Bible-teaching Baptist church, one of these will fill the bill.

Cool, thank you! A question I have well actually I have a  few is:

Do we regard each other and greet each other as brothers and sisters?

Is rebaptism needed in circumstance of where there no Baptismal letter as in a  conditional Baptism?

Thank you!!

Some churches address fellow Christians as brother and sister, some don't. On the forum it is the same way. 

Baptism is the first step in obedience after one's salvation. It is only necessary one time. But some churches will only accept baptism performed by Baptist churches. Others will accept if the church is doctrinally correct. 

When I was younger, I was privileged to attend a Christian school in Mountlake Terrace. There was a summer camp associated with the school. I was able to attend the year after my brother went for the first time. While I was there the Lord convicted me of the fact that I was a sinner who needed Christ. My counselor was able to show me through scripture that if I turned to Christ for forgiveness of my sin I would be saved. I accepted Christ as my Savior on that day. 

How about you, Beck? Would you share your testimony?

It's ok! I guess it's an easy mistake. I want to be like Jesus and not go to hell. I also want to live  a more Christian life that is full of grace, love and mercy like the Good Lord is.

Hi, and welcome to the forum.

May I ask why you're looking for either a Baptist church or Mennonite church? 

I think I may be Baptist due to theology and what I think of Halloween bc it's from the devil  but I was also thinking I may be Mennonite but definitely now think I'm a  person who identifies as a LGBTQ Baptist who needs to be baptized.

Why do you feel you need to be baptized? IOW, what is the purpose and intent of baptism? I guess what I'm asking is, what exactly is baptism and what does it do for a person?

I want to be renewed with and walk with Jesus is why I wish to be Baptised. It should feel like you are born again in and renewed in Christ.

Related Qs would be:

How does a person manage to get to Heaven when they die? Be as sinless as you can be and if not 100% sinless, confess your sins in private to the Lord Jesus and pray daily, avoid sin and educate yourself in regards to living a  Biblical life to walk with Jesus. If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.

He that covereth his sins shall not prosper: but whoso confesseth and forsaketh them shall have mercy.

Are you going to Heaven or Hell when you die? I want to go to Heaven to be with other Good people and the Lord and God.

If Heaven -- why? I'm generally a  nice person.And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away.

If Hell -- why? I don't want to go to hell aka I do the work bc I want to be with the Lord2 Thessalonians 1:8-12 King James Version (KJV)

In flaming fire taking vengeance on them that know not God, and that obey not the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ:

Who shall be punished with everlasting destruction from the presence of the Lord, and from the glory of his power;

10 When he shall come to be glorified in his saints, and to be admired in all them that believe (because our testimony among you was believed) in that day.

11 Wherefore also we pray always for you, that our God would count you worthy of this calling, and fulfil all the good pleasure of his goodness, and the work of faith with power:

12 That the name of our Lord Jesus Christ may be glorified in you, and ye in him, according to the grace of our God and the Lord Jesus Christ.

Please use Scripture when possible.

As well as being received unto the Church.

Hi there Brothers and Sisters! Also, do you consider the Book of Mormon and their KJV Bible to be of the Devil and to be unread? Thank you!

Edited by Fairybird
I had to use the KJV scripture. Let the Good Lord Bless you and keep you. Amen.,

Actually, the forum rules state very clearly that only the KJV is to be used when quoting the Bible on this site.

It is not the Mormon Bible - the KJV was around long before the Mormons - they do use it, but it is not theirs.

Their books are pure false fantasy, but they do use the right Bible. They use it wrongly.......

That's wonderful that you're nice. I also try to be nice to others and treat them the way that I would like to be treated. 

Is there a reason that you think being nice to others has a part in your admittance into heaven?

That's also wonderful that you want to be with other good people. Myself, I'd much rather spend time with people we consider good. :)

However...

Are you aware that when compared to God, none of us are good?

(Psalm 14:3) They are all gone aside, they are all together become filthy: there is none that doeth good, no, not one.

(Psalm 53:3) Every one of them is gone back: they are altogether become filthy; there is none that doeth good, no, not one.

You are supposed to love thy neighbor and follow the Golden rule.

 

Me too! Honestly, we will never compare nor even compare to Jesus but we should all aspire to be good enough to get into heaven and then the truth and peace should should be preached or there should be at least be peace aka Olam Hamba.

I'm not familiar with "Olam Hamba". A quick internet search returned no results that I could make sense of.

I try to love my neighbor as myself and follow the Golden Rule because I've been born again...not in order to be saved. :)  However, I often fall short and fail miserably.

Fairybird, would you be willing to accept it...if I (or anyone else here on the forum) could show you from God's word...that no one can get to heaven by being...good enough?

Fairybird, I would like to ask you to listen to the audio from the following link, in it, you will hear an explanation of how a person can know that they have eternal life when they go to heaven, it will show from God's word the truth about how to go to heaven. I believe that you very much are in need of hearing the message here, I think based on some of the answers you have given to No Nicolaitans that you have some misconceptions about how a person can go to heaven.
