I'm glad to see other churches showing their love for new believers by assuring their bsptisms are the humbling experience God intended rather than being concerned about their pride and what is more socially comfortable for them. We also require people to wear the one-piece plastic baptism suits (ours are light blue), and they are such a blessing for the whole church. One of the most important reasons we use them is that they help us keep pride out of the baptistry, where it has no place. Clothing is a symbol of human pride and status. There is no way to feel proud when you are standing in front of a church full of people in a simple, baggy one piece plastic suit. The suits were designed to be the most appropriate and convenient garment for us to put people in to perform the baptism procedure. There is no consideration for the vanity of the person being immersed and whether they might find it undignified or humbling to wear in front of the cute girl from Sunday school. It is a powerful reminder to them and everyone watching that they are in a position of humble obedience to God's authority through the authority of his church and are having someng done to them. They have no role in the process.

Isn't it fun and exciting to bring the Bible alive to a congregation. I have been using this method now for 15 years at Christmas and Easter, sharing the story of a Bible character. Thanks for sharing Gideon's story
