At the close of the sermon, the minister will “extend an invitation.” This is simply an expedient time to invite those who are moved to do so to make a commitment or request prayer support.
The minister will encourage those who wish to “respond” to come to the front of the auditorium while the congregation sings a hymn.
Don’t feel ill-at-ease during this invitation. You will not be singled out in any way.
Some may respond for baptism. If so, you will witness the baptism during this service. The baptism will be by immersion1 and it will be for the remission (forgiveness) of sins.2
