What We Believe About Baptism

We believe Christian baptism is the immersion of a believer in water in the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. It is an act of obedience, symbolizing the believer's death to sin, the burial of the old life, and the resurrection to walk in the newness of life in Christ Jesus.

Baptism is an outward expression of an inward change. It is a public declaration of how Jesus is changing your life from the inside out. Being baptized shows others that you've decided to follow Jesus, and allows everyone to celebrate this decision with you. Baptism is your public profession of faith, your identification with Jesus, and with the Church.
