Baptism is an important step in your spiritual journey and is the best way for you to identify yourself as a follower of Jesus Christ. Like a wedding ring, baptism outwardly expresses a change that has occurred in your heart. It identifies us with Jesus’ death, burial, and resurrection.
1 Corinthians 15:3-4 | I passed on to you what was most important and what had also been passed on to me. Christ died for our sins, just as the Scriptures said. He was buried, and he was raised from the dead on the third day, just as the Scriptures said.
Going under the water symbolizes that you are putting to death and burying your old self as it was before choosing Christ. It is also a reminder of what Jesus did for us when He died on the cross for our sins and was buried.
When you come up out of the water it symbolizes your “re-birth” to live a new life as a forgiven child of God. It is also a reminder that Jesus conquered death by being raised from the dead. His resurrection shows His power and authority to forgive our sins and to fulfill the promises He made.
Each Fall and Spring we have our Baptism Celebration weekends where we take time to celebrate the life change that each baptism represents. Baptisms will happen as part of these weekend worship services.
