THERE IS REALLY NOTHING LIKE CELEBRATING BAPTISM TOGETHER AS A CHURCH.
Historically, the first step new followers of Jesus have taken is to follow His example through baptism. Jesus died, was buried, and rose on our behalf and He asks us to demonstrate our faith in Him by symbolically doing the same in water. The water has no power. Jesus gives us new life. But, it is important to publicly profess our faith, and the initial way that is done is through baptism. It does not make you a Christian. Only your faith in Christ does that. Baptism is a powerful demonstration of what Jesus has made us all about in finding new life in Him, and going forward together, regardless of the past. We would love to be a part of your next step with Jesus in baptism.
five questions to ask before being baptized
- Do I understand my need to be saved?
- Have I put my faith in Jesus Christ to save me?
- Do I understand how Christ saves me?
- Am I willing to obey the teaching of Jesus?
- Do I understand what baptism is?
