Baptism

The act of water baptism is an important step in your spiritual journey. Baptism is an outward expression of the grace of God in the life of a believer, and is symbolic of salvation, not a part of it. Therefore, we believe that anyone professing a personal faith in Jesus should be baptized as an adult. Believer’s baptism has deep, significant meaning for our lives as followers of Christ. Being baptized after we have begun a relationship with Jesus Christ allows us to publicly express that we have indeed received God’s love, and in turn are committed to giving Him our entire lives. It’s also an opportunity to obey God and to mark ourselves as Christ’s followers as we follow his example of being baptized. Through the act of baptism, we become a part of God’s illustration, or story, of His love for humankind. As we are lowered into the water, those around us are reminded of Christ’s burial and the death of our old life. As we are raised out of the water, we are reminded of our new life through His resurrection. We would love to walk you through this step of faith, so our staff is always available to you to answer any questions. Please click any of the campus links for more information.
