The Bible gives us four ways to respond to God’s rescue: faith, confession, repentance, and baptism. Baptism is a Greek word that means ‘immerse’. When you are baptized, you are immersed in water. Baptism is one of the responses we give to the good news of God’s rescue through Jesus.
Why Should I Be Baptized?
Jesus said that being baptized is part of becoming his disciple. Mathew 28:19-20. The Bible also teaches that the waters of baptism represent a grave. When you are baptized you bury your old life and are raised into a new life.
We believe a conscious decision to accept Jesus as savior through baptism should be made by each individual. Babies cannot make that decision on their own until they grow and learn about Jesus. If you were baptized or sprinkled as a baby, we believe you still need to be baptized.
Note: Children ages 10 and under will complete an interview with our Children’s Pastor before being baptized.
Do you believe that Christ died on the Cross for you and your sins? Do you want to turn your life to God and live for Him? If you said yes, you are ready to be baptized now!
We believe there is no time like the present! We have a one onsite and is ready when you are. The biblical precedent is to give your life to Jesus in baptism once you have decided that you believe and want to give your life to Him. There is no need to wait around, or to put it off until grandma comes to town.
I am ready to get baptized!
