Study on Baptism for New Christians: The Baptism Challenge

Developed by Darrell Stetler II, a pastor with over two decades of ministry experience, this 21-day Bible study addresses a common challenge faced by pastors: guiding new believers through the significant step of baptism with understanding and reverence.

Key Features of The Baptism Challenge:

  • Daily Video Lessons: Each day features a short video that explains aspects of baptism, drawing on scripture and church traditions outlined in the Apostles Creed.

  • Practical Notebook: Participants will receive a printable Baptism Challenge notebook, ideal for journaling thoughts and scriptural reflections, and crafting a personal baptism testimony.

  • Community and Mentorship Focus: Encourages regular engagement with mentors and church community, reinforcing the supportive network essential for spiritual growth.

  • Media Resources: The Challenge includes social media graphics that your congregation can use to advertise their baptism Sunday, as well as media pieces like trailers, etc.

Addressing Pastoral Challenges with baptism:

Many pastors strive to create meaningful baptism experiences but often lack specific tools and plans. The Baptism Challenge provides a structured approach that helps pastors:

  • Educate Effectively: Communicate the theological underpinnings of baptism clearly and engagingly.

  • Simplify Discipleship: Reduce the complexity often associated with guiding new believers into a meaningful baptism Sunday.

  • Focus on Core Doctrine: Keep the essential message of the gospel at the heart of baptism preparation.

From the Creator, Darrell Stetler II:

"As a pastor, I've seen many new believers approach baptism with limited understanding of its profound significance. The Baptism Challenge is designed to equip pastors to lead effectively, and be sure that new Christians not only understand but prepare really well for this sacred moment."

How can I get the Baptism Challenge for my new believers?

The Baptism Challenge is only available as part of the NewStart Discipleship Pathway. For more info and pricing, visit Pastors and church leaders who have a membership can access bulk order discounts and additional resources to help integrate this study into their church programs.
