We're excited that you're thinking about getting baptized!
Here's what you need to know about baptism:
- Baptism is a visual and symbolic demonstration of a person's union with Christ in the likeness of His death and resurrection (Romans 6:4; Colossians 2:12)
- It signifies that a person’s former way of life has been put to death and vividly depicts a person's release from the mastery of sin.
- The pattern in scripture is that people are baptized after they come to a knowledge and understanding of salvation in Jesus (Acts 2:41; Acts 8:12; Acts 8:13). Because of that, we want to be as sure as we can that a person actually has a relationship with Jesus and understands the gospel theologically and personally before they're baptized.
- Baptism should be celebrated. When a person comes up out of the water, we clap, yell, and rejoice because we're celebrating a person crossing from death into life.
We're planning a Baptism Party on October 21st and would love for you to be praying about whether or not you will be baptized on that day.
If you plan on being baptized, or would like to hear more about it, let us know by filling out the form below. A required baptism class will occur on September 30th.
