Sign up below if you would be interested in getting Baptized. Our next Baptism will be on Sunday, NOVEMBER 7TH, 2021, during our morning Worship Service.
Why Should I Be Baptized?
Quite simply because Jesus told us to. When we make Jesus our Lord, we are committing to obeying Him.
Matthew 28:18–20 (NASB95) 18 And Jesus came up and spoke to them, saying, “All authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth. 19 “Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit, 20 teaching them to observe all that I commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age.”
When Should I Be Baptized?
In the New Testament, one of the first things many of the believers did was to be baptized.
Acts 2:38 (NASB95) 38 Peter said to them, “Repent, and each of you be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins; and you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit.
How Should I Be Baptized?
We believe immersion to be the most Biblical way to be baptized. In fact, the Greek word for Baptize means to immerse or dip. Baptism is an outward sign of something that has been done on the inside. Romans 6 gives us a clear picture of what has happened to us. When we accept Jesus as our Lord we are dying to self, and this is symbolized by us going under the water. We are then buried with Christ symbolically in baptism and when we are lifted up out of the water, we are raised to live a new life.
Romans 6:1–4 (NASB95) 1 What shall we say then? Are we to continue in sin so that grace may increase? 2 May it never be! How shall we who died to sin still live in it? 3 Or do you not know that all of us who have been baptized into Christ Jesus have been baptized into His death? 4 Therefore we have been buried with Him through baptism into death, so that as Christ was raised from the dead through the glory of the Father, so we too might walk in newness of life.
