Baptism

 

Baptism is an outward expression of an inward decision to follow Christ, and if you've made that decision, we'd love to baptize you. Jesus was baptized when He was on the earth, and we do this to follow His example. When Christians are baptized, they are submerged under water to identify with the death and burial of Jesus and raised out of the water to identify with His resurrection. We believe that water baptism is a public declaration of three important things: you are a follower of Jesus Christ, you are beginning a changed life in Christ, and you are part of a new family.

    What is Baptism?

    Baptism is an outward expression of an inward commitment.  It is the next step after you have prayed the prayer to accept Jesus as your Lord and Savior.

    When should I get baptized?

    The important thing to know about being baptized is that baptism is the first step in your spiritual journey, not the last. You can be baptized after service every Sunday! Don’t worry about bringing a change of clothes or a towel, we will have it all ready for you!

    What else do I need to know about being baptized?

    While baptism is not necessary for salvation, it is such an exciting part of the Christian faith. Jesus himself was baptized, submerged in water, and raised back out of it, foreshadowing his death and resurrection. We too, are symbolically laid to death in baptism and raised with Christ! Come and proclaim your faith in Christ today. For many Christians it marks a turning point for them in their lives. The day they chose to not turn back.
