Water Baptism

Baptism Sign-up Form

Baptism is an important step of obedience that shows others we have personally trusted Jesus for our salvation. When Christians are baptized, they are submerged under water to identify with the death and burial of Jesus and raised out of the water to identify with His resurrection. At theChurch, we practice baptism by what is called “immersion” which means your entire body goes under the water. People often have questions regarding baptism:
Why be baptized? Should I be baptized again? Please take a few minutes and read the facts about baptism. Being baptized is not how a person becomes a Christian – you became a Christian the moment you placed your faith in Jesus Christ.  If you do not get baptized, you are still a Christian because your salvation does not depend on works (See Ephesians 2:8-9). Yet, because Jesus taught that his followers should get baptized, you ought to obey him, just like you are called to obey everything else he taught.  Baptism is an outward symbol of the inward reality that you are a “believer in” and “follower of” Jesus Christ.
