Or don't you know that all of us who were baptized into Christ Jesus were baptized into his death?  We were therefore buried with him through baptism into death in order that, just as Christ was raised from the dead through the glory of the Father, we too may live a new life.                            Romans 6:3-4 (NIV)

Background

The songs of True Vine Music are written from the perspective of a sacramental view of Baptism. That is, that Baptism is not just something that we do, but rather that it is a mystery in which God is at work through Water, Word and Spirit.   For a deeper presentation on sacramental theology, go to the the Sacraments page.

Baptism is a gift of Jesus to His church, by which he places His name upon us (Matthew 28:19), clothes us with himself (Galatians 3:27), forgives our sins (Acts 2:38), connects us to His death and resurrection (Romans 6:3-4), and incorporates us into His body, the church (1 Corinthians 12:13).   These gifts, as all of the gifts of God are received through faith.
   Jesus' ministry begins with His baptism, and concludes with His mandate to make disciples of the nations, baptizing them and teaching them to obey all that He has commanded.

Since the bulk of contemporary worship music is coming from traditions that do not hold a sacramental view of baptism, there is a distinct need for more worship songs to fill this void: Songs that celebrate the baptism of an individual, as well as songs that celebrate the baptism of the baptized and reflect on the gift that God has given in Christ by Water, Word and Spirit.
