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.
A baptism class is required in order to participate in the celebration of baptisms during services. The next class is scheduled for Monday, October 28, 7:00 PM – 8:00 PM at our Keslinger Campus.
