Have A Salvation Party
We Catholics celebrate our entry to Salvation (Baptism) by giving gifts and throwing a celebration.
If Protestants believe in the 'Sinner's Prayer' for Salvation, why don't you all show it?
If you take the time for birthdays and graduation celebrations why NOT have a Salvation Party?

//Denominational "christians" will celebrate the killing of the last two prophets sent by God by giving gifts and throwing a celebration because the two prophets do not adhere to their denominations doctrines.---Steveng on 10/23/16
As always you are too VAGUE.
Unless you are more specific, I will have to assume are you speaking about a store front Church no one heard of with a membership of 15 people.
14 of the 15 are the Pastor, his wife, his 4 Adult kids with their spouses, and 3 grandchildren.
The 15th person came in for a hot meal and a warm space to sit.

Denominational "christians" will celebrate the killing of the last two prophets sent by God by giving gifts and throwing a celebration because the two prophets do not adhere to their denominations doctrines.
But remember, all things are doable, but not all things are profitable.

Bill, I understand now.
Thanks for explaining.

Nicole, by a "convert" I mean someone who has repented and now desires to follow Jesus. The repentance comes before the water baptism. So, we are celebrating the repentance and the baptism. The party begins before the baptisms, and we have the baptisms, and then more enjoying sharing with one another.
And if we are in God's love celebrating, isn't God's love Heaven's love? Romans 5:5 So, spiritually wouldn't we be in Heaven celebrating, by being in Heaven's Holy Spirit of Heaven's love?
Ephesians 1:3 and Ephesians 2:5-7

These Scripture seem to support the notion of celebrating exceeding joy with rejoicing.

//:o) We do have parties, often by having a group baptism of new converts.//
So you have a party AFTER baptizing them?
Wording means a lot.
"Baptism of new converts"
Don't you mean People who are baptized?
You statement seems to suggest they are converted first then you baptize them
//And Jesus says there is a great celebration, in Heaven, when a sinner repents. So, Heaven has a party, I guess you could say, Nicole (c: ---Bill on 10/20/16
Yes, but that's the Virgin Mary, the Saints and the Angels in Heaven having a party.

//Salvation is not an event, it is a process.//
I TOTALLY AGREE.
But as our life on earth goes through aging process, we still celebrate our birthday
//But why do you think we receive our crowns after our life and not during?---Mark_Eaton
As when running a race. St Paul used this example.
One can be ahead of everyone for the 1st 3/4 length of the race.
It doesn't mean they will win. Someone passes them before the finish line.
It's the finish line that counts because we can reject Jesus at anytime during our life.
BTW, the RCC celebrates the death date of a Saint not their birthdates.
Only birthdays we celebrate is Jesus Christ, Virgin Mary (Sept 8th) John the Baptist (June 24th)

I must stress this thought again.
Salvation is not an event, it is a process.
Salvation is a marathon, not a sprint.
Look at the Scriptures. Jesus tell us that those who overcome (at the end) will be saved. Those who constantly abide in Him, will be saved. Those who continually call upon the name of the Lord will be saved.
We should be grateful for the day when we see the way, the truth, and the life for the truth that He really is.
But why do you think we receive our crowns after our life and not during?
