Believers’ Baptism

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.

Our next Baptism Class will be held in the spring of 2023.
