Why should I get water baptized?

Because we believe that baptism is an important step of obedience for every person who has accepted Christ as his or her Savior.

If the meaning of baptism could be boiled down to one word, that word would be identification. Baptism speaks primarily of a personal, public identification with Jesus Christ.

What then does baptism mean?

1. It means we have turned from the old life of sin to a new life in Jesus Christ.

2. It means we are publicly identifying with the death, burial, and resurrection of Christ.

3. It means we are openly joining the ranks of those who believe in Christ.

And since you personally are being baptized, you are also saying, “I died with Jesus Christ, I was buried with him and now I am raised with Christ to brand-new life.”

If this is your next step in your walk with Christ to desire to identify with Him in obedience, then sign up at the welcome center to go to the Baptism class which will be lead by Pastor John.
