An external symbol of an internal decision
We are here to assist you when you are ready to take the step of baptism.
Baptism is an external symbol of an internal spiritual decision to believe the gospel, repent from sin and receive the gift of eternal life. In the New Testament, baptism involved a public confession of faith in Jesus Christ. Being lowered into the water symbolizes or pictures being washed by the blood of Jesus. Arising out of the water symbolizes newness in Christ–a result of spiritual cleansing through Jesus. Through baptism, therefore, believers in Jesus Christ are publicly identifying themselves with Christ and His Church. It is their announcement to all who witness the event that Jesus Christ is their Savior and Lord.
If you would like to take this next step in your relationship with Jesus, join us at our next baptism class. At that time, you will receive more information and can indicate your intent to be baptized at the next service that includes baptisms.
