Should I Be Baptized?
Baptism isn’t required for salvation, but is the first
step of faith for believers. The baptismal waters don’t
save anyone. It’s Jesus that does that. Baptism is a
picture of the work that Jesus has done in a person’s
Baptism illustrates Christ’s death, burial, and
resurrection. (1 Corinthians 15:3-4) It shows our new life
as a follower of Christ. (2 Corinthians 5:17) Baptism
doesn’t make you a believer… it shows that you already
believe. Baptism doesn’t save you; Jesus does! Baptism
is like a wedding ring, signifying a relationship rather
than forming that relationship.
We follow Jesus’ example in baptism. He was baptized (Mark 1:9), and commanded us to be baptized (Matthew 28:19-20).
As Baptists, we baptize by immersion. That’s the example we see throughout Scripture, and is the basis for the meaning of the word “baptize,” which means to immerse (or dip under) in water.
Ready to Be Baptized?
If you’re a believer, you should be baptized! It doesn’t matter if you were saved 20 years ago or just last week… it’s time to take the next step in your faith journey.
We do require for every person that wants to be baptized to attend a baptism class. If you are interested in baptism please email us and let us know!
