What is Baptism?

Baptism is central to the Christian faith. The Bible teaches when an individual accepts Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior they are ready for baptism. Baptism is an outward expression of an inward decision declaring Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior. Baptism doesn't make you a believer but shows you already believe. Baptism is an act of obedience because Jesus instructed us to be baptized.

Frequently Asked Questions

Why should I be baptized?

Because we want to be obedient to Christ. He said: “Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit …” Matthew 28:19
Baptism is an acknowledgement of your faith in Christ before family and friends.

If you’ve given your life to Jesus and have never been baptized, baptism is your next step.

What does baptism mean?

Baptism follows salvation and is a public profession of your faith in Christ.  It is your next step after surrendering your life to Jesus.

Baptism symbolizes Jesus’ death, burial and resurrection.  “...that Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures, 4 that he was buried, that he was raised…” Corinthians 15: 3-4

Baptism illustrates a believer’s new life as a Christian: “We were therefore buried with him through baptism into death in order that, just as Christ was raised from the dead through the glory of the Father, we too may live a new life. ” Romans 6:4  Baptism does not save you, but rather is an outward expression of the inward decision you have already made accepting Jesus Christ as your personal Lord & Savior. 

When should I be baptized?

When you decide to follow Jesus, baptism is the next step. There is no reason to delay. You are ready to be baptized the moment you give your life to Jesus. If you’re waiting until you’re perfect, you’ll never be ready. “Those who accepted his message were baptized, and about three thousand were added to their number that day. ” Acts 2:41

It is also important to know that it is never too late to be baptized. Many people, for a variety of reasons, wait and decide to be baptized well after becoming a Christian. While there is no reason to wait, it is important for a believer to be baptized even if it has been years since becoming a Christian.
