Baptism is an outward expression of an inward faith. It’s showing everyone that you’ve confessed (you’ve said it out loud) that Jesus is Lord and believed in your heart God raised Him from the dead. Baptism is a way to symbolize the death and resurrection of Christ in our lives as believers.
We believe that by being placed completely underwater, baptism by submersion symbolizes the death and resurrection of Jesus in our lives as believers. Complete submersion also represents the total spiritual change a person experiences by being rescued and saved by Jesus.
Who should be baptized?
If you have confessed with your mouth that Jesus is Lord, repented of your sin, and believed that God raised Him from the dead, and you’ve never been baptized before, your next step is to be baptized. Confessing, repenting, and believing makes you a Christian and all Christians are commanded by Jesus to be baptized. (Matthew 28:19) We encourage you to take your next step as a believer to be baptized and publicly share your faith in Him.
How can I be baptized?
We have baptisms throughout the year at every one of our campuses and would love for you to be a part of one! Signing up is really easy. Whenever you decide to sign up, tell us about your story! We love hearing stories of how God continually rescues people!
