What is baptism?

Baptism is an outward expression of an inward change.

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."

When you are baptized, you're saying to the world that you want to be identified with Christ and His Church. You are also committing yourself to live a life that honors Him.

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

As Matthew 28:18-20 says "And Jesus came and said to them, 'All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age.'"

What is your next step?

If you have accepted Jesus Christ as your personal Lord and Savior, we encourage you to follow Christ's command to be baptized.

We ask that you complete the baptism application (link is below) and take our baptism class. These typically take place a few weeks before our baptisms and are widely announced to give you plenty of time to sign up.

Have any questions? Don't hesitate to ask.
