Baptism

WHAT IS BAPTISM?

The Bible clearly teaches that baptism is the first step of obedience after making a commitment to Christ. Baptism allows a believer to communicate to the world their heart-felt commitment to Christ. Baptism doesn’t make you a Christian; only your faith in Christ does that. Baptism is like a wedding ring – it’s the outward sign of the commitment you have made in your heart.

WHY IMMERSION?

  • Because Jesus was baptized that way (Matthew 3:16)
  • Every baptism in the Bible was by immersion (for example: Acts 8:38-39).
  • The word “baptize” means “to dip under water.”
  • It best symbolized a burial and resurrection (see Romans 6:1-11).
