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.
This is the Tau Cross. This cross looks like the Greek letter called Tau. This cross sometimes has a serpent on it, giving it a special meaning. When the Israelites ]were in the desert many died when they were bitten by poisonous snakes. God instructed Moses to make a serpent of brass and hang it on a pole. Anyone bitten by a snake was to look at the brass snake. When he did, he would live. Today, when we look to Christ and Him crucified on the cross, we will live!
"Just as Moses lifted up the snake in the desert, so the Son of Man must be lifted up, that everyone who believes in him may have eternal life." John 3:14
