OUR LIFE IN CHRIST story: Through Holy Baptism, in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit, we are brought to faith in Jesus our Lord and Savior, who redeemed us, by His death on the cross, through His Word, and the Sacrament of Holy Communion, and in regular worship we are strengthened until that great day when we shall rise to eternal life with the King of Kings.
The cross is the greatest and most used Christian symbol. Without Jesus’ death on the cross, we would be lost forever. There are over 50 forms of the Christian cross, but we will only learn of seven today. The Latin Cross, sometimes called the Roman cross, is the most common. This cross is recognized throughout the world.
"Carrying his own cross, he went out to the place of the Skull (which in Aramaic is called Golgotha). Here they crucified him, and with him two others--one on each side and Jesus in the middle. John 19:17-18
