Baptism and worship

Bob Kauflin's church has incorporated baptism into the regular worship service, much as most churches make communion part of worship:
Water baptism doesn't save anyone, but it is the biblical sign that a person's sins have been washed away by the blood of Jesus, and that we've been united with Christ in his death and resurrection (1Cor. 6:9-11; Rom. 6:3-4). It also seals that fact that we've begun a new life in Christ (2 Cor. 5:17). In view of its significance, we'll be making changes in our practice of baptism that strengthen these biblical convictions. One of the most evident is starting to include water baptisms regularly in our Sunday meetings, potentially even twice a month.

    I wasn't there, but at Woodmen Valley Chapel in Colorado Springs, one weekend they baptized around 250 people. For the next several weeks, a few people were baptized.
