Baptism is an important step of obedience that shows others you have personally trusted Jesus for your salvation.
Jesus was baptized when He was on the earth, and we do this to follow His example. When Christians are baptized, they are submerged under water to identify with the death and burial of Jesus and raised out of the water to identify with His resurrection.
We believe that water baptism is a public declaration of three important things: you are a follower of Jesus Christ, you are beginning a changed life in Christ, and you are part of a new family.
“Whoever acknowledges me before others, I will also acknowledge before my Father in heaven. But whoever disowns me before others, I will disown before my Father in heaven.” Matthew 10:32-33
Baptism is an outward expression of what you have already decided in your heart. If you are ready to make that public declaration, get started by making plans to attend stepONE of Growth Track that happens the first Sunday of every month during the 11am service in Portable D4. Then schedule a baptism time and invite your friends and family to celebrate with you.
