Baptism

“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.” Romans 6:4

Water Baptism is the next step of obedience after making a decision to give your life to Jesus. It is an outward expression of an inward change that publicly declares your commitment to following Him. Following Christ’s example, we practice full-immersion water baptism, symbolizing His death and resurrection.

FAQ

Who should be water baptized?

Those who have personally placed faith in Jesus Christ. (Romans 10:9-10)

 

When should I be water baptized?

As soon as you decided to follow Jesus, baptism is the next step.  There is no reason to delay. (Acts 8:12)

 

Why should I be water baptized?

Because Christ commanded it and set an example by being water baptized Himself. (Matthew 28:18-20, Mark 1:9)

 

What is full-immersion water baptism?

The Greek word from which we get the word baptism is “baptizo”, which literally means “to immerse”.  All water baptisms in scripture were by full immersion.  Jesus was water baptized by being fully immersed in the water and rising out of it. (Matthew 3:16, Mark 1:10, Acts 8:38-39)

 

Do I need to be water baptized again?

If you have not been water baptized by immersion after you personally placed your faith in Jesus Christ, we want to help you take that next step.  Once you have been water baptized according to the example giving in scripture, there is no need to be baptized again.

 

Do you water baptize children?

We wait to water baptize a child until he/she is old enough to believe and understand the true meaning of baptism.  All instances of water baptism in scripture followed a person’s own decision to trust Christ alone for their salvation.  When a child makes a personal decision to follow Jesus, we will gladly help them take the step of water baptism.
