What is baptism?

Baptism is a basic command of the Lord Jesus for all His followers. He said to baptize them “in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit,” (Matthew 28:19). Christians are to be baptized soon after they embrace Jesus as their Savior and Lord. New Christians are to be willing to take this step of public identification in response to the command of the One they confess as Lord and Savior.
 

Why is baptism so important?

We may ask ourselves at this point, "If baptism does not wash away our sins, or join us to the church, or secure our salvation, then why is it so important?" Consider the following:

1. Baptism is a matter of obedience. Personal obedience to the Great Commission dictates that we obey the Lord in baptism and that baptism be taught and practiced among our disciples. We therefore obey the injunction to teach "all things that I [Christ] have commanded you" (Matthew 28:19-20).

2. Baptism is a witness to the world. Baptism in one of the most effective witnesses of our faith to family and friends.

3. Baptism is a witness to other believers. Since baptism is an outward and public demonstration of the believer's identification with the person and work of Christ, it is also identification with other believers.

In some countries where believers are persecuted severely for their faith, believers are wary of a Christian who is not willing to make a public stand through baptism.

What does baptism look like at our church?

We practice baptism in front of the congregation in one of our services. The person being baptized will give their testimony of how they came to know Jesus as their Lord and Savior and how their life has changed as a result of belonging to Him. Subsequently, a member of the church leadership will baptize the candidate by immersing them in the baptismal waters. We immerse people because it is a powerful symbol of two important realities. The first reality that immersion symbolizes is the death, burial and resurrection of Jesus Christ. The second symbol that immersion portrays is newness of life. Through Jesus, the Christian has been not only given eternal life, but a new life to live for Him. Thus, their “old self” is dead and they are now spiritually alive to love and follow Jesus.
 

Have you been baptized?

If you are a Christian and have never followed the Lord in obedience to His command of baptism, this is a great opportunity to follow Him and to be an encouragement to our congregation by sharing a brief testimony of the work of Jesus in your life.
 

To take the next step…

Please complete our Baptism Application to request to be baptized at our next baptism service. You will then be contacted with further details.
