Baptism: Identification with the New Covenant

Sermon preached by David Platt from the series Covenant Community.

As followers of Christ, we are recipients of a new covenant. He has bought us with His blood and sealed our salvation for all of eternity. As a result of each of us being in Christ, we are also members of a new community. In a very real sense, we belong to each other. The covenant that unites us to God also unites us to one another. This separates the church – the body of Christ – from any other institution, organization, club, or relationship that we might have. We literally have an eternal bond with one another. In God’s covenant with us, He has designed a covenant community that will display His character to a watching world. So what does it mean to be a part of a covenant community called The Church at Brook Hills?
