harnessing the power of photography for good

Baptism @ The Plunge

I love baptisms! There is nothing more significant than watching someone make their declaration in public that they have given their life to Jesus. That declaration is a commitment that won’t keep them from sin or death but it will prepare them for everlasting life in heaven as well as putting them on the path to serve Him. A step of faith is symbolized by immersion in water and is not a requirement. I always marvel at how it represents our trust in Him. We close our eyes, lay back in another persons arms, and then let them dunk us. We do this with eyes closed and complete trust that we will surface again to take a breath. This is how we should also live our lives by trusting that God will always be there for us when we are in need. This is why I love baptisms so much. For me besides capturing these moments through photography, it reminds me that I need to have that same trust in Him.

Romans 15:13 – May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.

In Him,

Jim Wanglund
