BAPTISM

WHAT IS BAPTISM?

We believe that baptism is an important step of obedience for every person who has accepted Christ as his or her Savior. You may have seen it or heard about it before – but you might have questions. Why is it an act of obedience? Is it required of everyone? If I’ve been baptized before, do I need to do it again?
We would love to help you understand what baptism means and if it’s the next step for you. Let us know if you’re interested in leaning more or if you know you want to be baptized.

BAPTISM BASICS

The Bible explains 3 reasons for baptism:

Jesus did it.

Matthew 3:13-15

He told the disciples
to do it.

Matthew 28:18–20

He told us to do it.

Mark 16:16

AM I READY?

Romans 6:1-4 says, “What shall we say, then? Shall we go on sinning so that grace may increase? By no means! We are those who have died to sin; how can we live in it any longer? 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.”
Anyone who believes that Jesus’s death on the cross was a sacrifice for their sin and the only way to reconcile us with God should choose to be baptized. By baptism, a believer is saying to the community, “I trust Christ alone for my salvation.”
