QUESTIONS ABOUT BAPTISM?

People often have many questions about baptism. What is it, why is it important? Please read the answers to a few of the most common questions.

What is baptism?

Baptism is an outward expression of an inward change. It’s a public declaration of how Jesus changed your life. Being baptized shows others that you’ve decided to follow Jesus, and allows them to celebrate this decision with you (Acts 16:31-34).

Why is it important?

Jesus instructs us to be baptized and set the example by being baptized (Matthew 28:19-20Mark 1:9).

Obedience to Jesus shows we believe and follow Him. (1 John 2:3). Because Jesus went public about His love for us, we can go public about our love for Him. Being baptized shows that we turn away from a life of sin toward Jesus, the only one who can change us (Acts 2:38-41).

Who can be baptized?

Baptism is intended only for those who have professed faith in Jesus Christ and can give sufficient testimony to the basics of Christian beliefs. If you are unsure if this is you, plese contact one of our pastors.
