Abstract
"The growth of churches is predicated upon the membership claiming the inheritance of baptism and living into the expectations of their initiation into Christ's holy church. The author analyzed the role of baptism in the life of a congregation where most do not remember or recall the moment of their baptism. In this evaluation, the author created tools for persons [in the United Methodist Church and other Christian traditions] to recommit to their baptism and the spiritual gifting that emerges from this practice. By so doing, the author intended to foster an environment of spiritual fruitfulness and congregational growth." -- Leaf [2].
