Baptism

What Is Baptism?

Water baptism is an outward act of obedience and a symbol that signifies that a person has in fact received Jesus Christ as their Savior and Lord. Jesus Himself modeled submission to water baptism at the hands of John at the beginning of His public ministry (Matthew 3:13-17; Mark 1:9-11; Luke 3:21-22; John 1:19-34). In the Scriptures, water baptism always immediately followed a person’s conversion experience. Though water baptism does not “save” a person it signifies that they have been “saved” and shows their desire to be identified with Christ and affiliated with a local expression of His church.

Why Be Baptized?

We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ has committed two ordinances to the local church: baptism and the Lord’s Supper. We believe that the Christian baptism is the immersion of a believer in water in to the name of the triune God. We get baptized because Jesus commanded it, the Apostles and the early church practiced it, and to show that you are a Christ follower.

Baptism – What and Why
