“For when the goodness and loving kindness
Of God our Saviour appeared, he saved us,
not because of righteousness that we had done,
but according to his mercy, through the water of rebirth
and renewal by the Holy Spirit.”
Paul’s Letter to Titus: 3, 4-5

“Jesus went out beside the sea; the whole crowd
gathered around him, and he taught them.
As he was walking along, he saw Levi son of Alpheus
sitting at the tax booth, and he said to him,
“Follow me.” And he got up and followed him.”
Mark 2:13,14

John said to the people by the Jordan:
“I baptize you with water, but one who is
more powerful than I is coming;
He who is to come is mightier than I;
He will baptize you with the Holy Spirit
and with fire.”
Luke 3: 16
