Baptism

Baptism is an outward confession of an inward commitment. It demonstrates that I am really a believer. (Acts 18:8; 1 John 2:3)

The MEANING of baptism

It illustrates Christ’s death, burial and resurrection and my new life as a Christian.
(2 Corinthians 5:17; Romans 6:4)

The ACT of baptism

Believer’s baptism is by immersion. (Acts 8:38-39)
Every person who has ACCEPTED SALVATION should be baptized.

The act of being baptized plays no part in the process of salvation (indeed, no work can justify us of our sin or merit salvation), but it is a step of obedience symbolizing the believer’s faith in the risen Savior, death to sin, and resurrection to walk in new life with Christ. It is an outward symbol of an inward change, and a sign of fellowship and identification with the church body. We believe that only people who have made a profession of faith in Jesus Christ should be baptized.

(Mark 1:10; Acts 8:26-39; Rom. 6:3-4; Col. 2:12; Acts 22:16; Acts 2:41-42; Acts 10:47- 48; Gal. 3:27)

Everyone comes together for our Baptism services because we recognize that the entire body plays a role in seeing people come to Christ.
