Purpose Statement

Baptism by immersion symbolizes the death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus and is your public declaration that you have accepted Jesus Christ as your personal Savior. Baptism does not save you, but shows the world that you have already been saved. And while baptism is not required for salvation, it is a biblical command and demonstrates your love and obedience to Christ.

 

We assist with the baptism ceremony by registering and preparing people for their baptism. During the ceremony, we congratulate each participate, recording the event with a certificate and photograph of their baptism to take home.  We also provide a Baptism T-Shirt that you wear during your Water Baptism and it is yours to take home to remember your special day.

Scriptures to Study:

Colossians 2:12; Acts 2:41; Ephesians 2: 8-9; Matthew 28:19-20
