Baptism is an important and exciting step of obedience for every person who has accepted Christ as their Savior.
It is a privilege to celebrate with you as you take this next step on your spiritual journey.
Baptism is an act of obedience to the command of Christ: “Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you” (Matthew 28:19–20).
While baptism itself does not save us, when you are baptized, you are declaring publicly that you are a follower of Jesus.
Baptism celebrates through symbolism many aspects of our salvation in Christ. The water symbolizes spiritual cleansing and forgiveness through Jesus’ sacrifice. Immersion under the water symbolizes dying to our old, self-centered ways, and then being raised to a new life marked by love for God and others. Baptism is public because it is also a celebration of belonging to God’s family, the New Community we call the Church. It’s one of the best ways disciples of Jesus can share their story with others.
