WHY GET BAPTIZED

Baptism is an act of public confession. Romans 10:9 says, "that if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved." As a disciple of the Lord Jesus Christ we live with Him as Lord. Baptism, though, is that key public moment when, before heaven and earth, we declare Jesus is our Lord and Savior.

As the person is immersed in the water at baptism, the person is demonstrating that they have been personally identified with the death of Christ on the cross for sin. Their sin and judgment has been buried with Christ. As the person emerges from the water, they are showing that just as Jesus rose from the grave, so His resurrected life is now alive in them.

BEFORE YOU DECIDE TO BE BAPTIZED

  • Do you believe that Jesus Christ died on the cross as the perfect substitute for your sin?
  • Do you believe that He rose from the dead on the third day?
  • Are you trusting Him fully for the forgiveness of your sins?
  • Have you committed your life to Him as your Savior and Lord?
  • By the help that He gives, will you follow Him for the rest of your life?
