What is Baptism?

The most important decision that we can make in our life is to choose to follow Jesus. We recognize our sin and our need for forgiveness. Jesus’s death on the cross allows us to be forgiven and reconciled to God. He cleanses us from our sins and raises us to new life. 

Baptism is an important next step for anyone who chooses to follow Christ. Baptism marks a turning point in our life.  It publicly expresses our commitment to God and is a picture of what God has done inside us.

Who should be baptized?

Anyone who believes in Jesus Christ should be baptized after trusting him. (Acts 2:41; Acts 8:12)

Why be baptized?

We are baptized to obey Jesus’ command and to follow His example. (Matthew 28:19; Mark 1:9-11)

How should we be baptized?

The Greek word “baptizo” means “to dip” or “to immerse.” That’s how Jesus was baptized. It demonstrates our death and burial. Coming out of the water is a vivid picture of our new life in Christ. 

(Matthew 3:16; Acts 8:38-39)
