What is Baptism?
We believe that baptism
is an outward picture of inward belief in Jesus Christ. It is a public declaration of beginning a personal relationship with Jesus. It is one of the first steps of obedience for a new believer in their walk with Christ. Throughout Scripture, we see that people were:
- Baptized after they made a commitment to follow Christ.
- Baptized by immersion to picture the death, burial, and resurrection of Christ.
- Baptized publicly to declare their belief to the church and community.
