Worship God | Connect with Others | Serve the World
Baptism is the way you exhibit your acceptance of Jesus Christ as your personal Savior. We practice baptism by immersion for those people who make or have already made a clear declaration of their belief in Christ.
Baptism by immersion illustrates Jesus' burial and resurrection.
For what I received I passed on to you as of first importance: that Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures, that he was buried, that he was raised on the third day according to the Scriptures.
1 Corinthians 15:3-4 NIV
Baptism illustrates your new life in Christ.
Therefore if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; the old has gone, the new has come!
2 Corinthians 5:17 NIV
Baptism does not make you a believer. It shows you already believe.
For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith - and this not from yourselves, it is the gift of God - not by works, so that no one can boast. Ephesians 2:8-9 NIV
