What is baptism?
Baptism is the immersion in water by a believer in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit as commanded by Jesus (Matthew 28:19-20). It is an act of obedience for those committing their lives to Jesus. Those being baptized are submerged in water, symbolically demonstrating the washing away of sins through Jesus’ death and resurrection. Baptism was modeled by Jesus and commanded for all Christians in Matthew 28:19-20.
Why be baptized?
Baptism is a powerful experience that symbolically identifies us with the death and resurrection of Jesus through being “buried” and “resurrected” in water (Romans 6:3). This act of obedience doesn’t save you from your sins. Only Jesus can do that. But baptism sets a tone of radical obedience, counter cultural faith and a heart filled with humility.
Who should be baptized?
Everyone who knows Jesus Christ as their personal Savior should be baptized (Mark 16:16). Jesus commanded all believers to boldly declare their faith through participating in this ancient experience.
When should I be baptized?
You should be baptized immediately after you believe in Jesus. Baptism always follows belief (Acts 2:38). In scriptures, people believed and were baptized. For a clear example of this, read the story of the Phillip and the Ethiopian (Acts 8:26-40)
What is the Process?
Baptism Class meets one hour before the service in the LOFT, right before the baptisms take place during the service. Everyone being baptized is encouraged to attend this class along with anyone interested in more information. We will provide t-shirts for the baptism, so those being baptized only need to bring shorts that can get wet, a change of clothes and a towel
