Being baptized is a big deal because Jesus made it a big deal. “Jesus came and told his disciples, I have been given all authority in heaven and on earth. Therefore, go and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit. Teach these new disciples to obey all the commands I have given you. And be sure of this: I am with you always, even to the end of the age.” Matthew 28:18-20
We offer a water baptism class that goes into detail what water baptism is all about, but the key points include:
1. Baptism is a public declaration of a new association.
2. Baptism is a personal declaration of a new association.
3. Baptism is not a condition of salvation; it is evidence of salvation.
4. Form is not critical as timing.
We encourage everyone who made the decision to follow Jesus to be promptly baptized in water. If you’re ready to take this step contact us and we will schedule a time!
