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

heart.

      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!
