What is baptism?
The Bible teaches that Baptism does not save you, rather it is a symbolic outward expression of what has taken place on the inside. The person being baptized is publicly declaring that they have come into a saving relationship with Jesus and that their old sinful self has been crucified with Christ and just as Jesus was raised, they to are raised to new life (Romans 6:1-4). We believe that the Bible teaches the first step in obedience to Jesus after salvation is baptism (repent, believe, & be baptized). When you get baptized, you are testifying to all present that Christ has saved you and are allowing witnesses to hold you accountable to the decision you have made.
Who should be baptized?
The Bible teaches that a person should be baptized to publicly declare their relationship with God. It is the first step of obedience when you surrender your life to Jesus. Baptism symbolizes life before Christ, burial with Christ in His death, and being raised as He was raised to new life! We believe that when a person becomes a Jesus follower, they should be baptized to communicate that with the world.
