One of the most incredible things we get to see each year is that people proclaim their relationship with the Lord through water baptism. The Bible talks about this being an essential step in our walk with God because it’s a physical way to tell the world you’ve put your old life behind you, and now you follow Jesus. Maybe you are new in your relationship with God, or perhaps you’ve had one for a while, but you haven’t been baptized. So please make plans to join us on Sunday, May 22, at 1:30 PM for our Baptism by registering. Being baptized is a fantastic way to go public about your relationship with Jesus, so bring your family and friends with you so we can all celebrate the new life you’ve found in Christ.
We believe that water baptism is a personal and public expression of saving faith in Jesus Christ. It gives evidence of the inner change that has already occurred in the believer’s life when they were “born again” by grace through faith in Jesus Christ. (Romans 6:1-8; Colossians 2:12) Children may be baptized if they have come to an age where they can receive and understand God’s Word. (The Gospel). We believe this is a parental responsibility to determine the appropriate age. However, infants are to be dedicated to the Lord (1 Samuel 1:26-28).
