Water Baptism is an important and powerful step. If you’ve recently dedicated or recommitted your life to the Lord, we encourage you to be water baptized!
WHAT IS THE PURPOSE OF WATER BAPTISM?
Through water baptism, we identify with the death, burial and resurrection of Jesus. It's like saying to the Lord Jesus, "Your death is my death- I no longer have to die for my sins. Your life is my life- I now have your eternal life, and I will not die for my sins" (Romans 3:23; 6:34, 10:13). As you are immersed underwater, you bury your old, sinful nature, and when you come up out of the water, you experience new life and resurrection that belong to you through Jesus.
WHO SHOULD BE WATER BAPTIZED?
All those who have committed themselves to Jesus Christ as their Lord, by turning away from sin and trusting in Him, should be baptized. While babies may be dedicated to the Lord from birth, baptism is reserved for believers. Once you have committed yourself to Jesus Christ and acknowledge Him as Lord, you are ready for water baptism.
