Baptism

Is Baptism my Next Step?

In Romans 6:1-11, the apostle Paul explains how baptism by immersion identifies a believer with the death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus. Going under water symbolizes aligning with Jesus’ death and dying to our sin; coming up out of the water illustrates alignment with His resurrection and is a symbol of new birth in Christ. Baptism is a commitment to let Jesus be the Savior and Lord of your life. It is how you say “yes” to Jesus for the very first time!

What if I was Baptized When I was a Baby?

In Acts 2|41 we read: “Those who accepted (believed) his message were baptized …”

Baptism is a choice a believer makes. It’s a personal step of faith. An infant can’t make that decision. We believe Scripture teaches that the commitment to be baptized should take place when someone is old enough to understand the decision they are making. If you were baptized as a baby, and you are ready to make that decision for yourself, baptism is your next step. It’s a way to fulfill the commitment your parents made.
