Just as I Am

Southern Baptist Women’s Experiences of Salvation and Baptism

(p.37) 1 Just as I Am
God Speaks to Us, Too

Susan M. Shaw

University Press of Kentucky

This chapter discusses the beginnings of a life as a Christian and as a Southern Baptist. In this description these are marked by two distinct and essential experiences: conversion and a believer's baptism by immersion. The first experience is necessary to enter the community of God, while the second experience is necessary to become a member of a Southern Baptist church. For Southern Baptists, conversion is the essential step in the Christian life, and sometimes it is considered as a dramatic experience.
