Baptism is the Next step in your Journey of Faith. Baptism is an outward sign of an inward work of Grace.
We are told in Matthew 28:19 to “Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost:”
There is no saving grace in the act of Baptism itself, the Bible tells us in Romans 6:4 “Therefore we are buried with him by baptism into death: that like as Christ was raised up from the dead by the glory of the Father, even so we also should walk in newness of life.”
I Peter 3:21 instructs us further “The like figure whereunto even baptism doth also now save us (not the putting away of the filth of the flesh, but the answer of a good conscience toward God,) by the resurrection of Jesus Christ:”
Baptism is a public declaration of your commitment to Christ, signifying that you have died to self, and are now living for Christ.
When you are saved, you need to be baptized as soon as possible. Baptism and Church membership go hand in hand. If you have been saved but not yet baptized, see your Sunday School teacher or the Pastor and they will arrange to have you baptized in one of our baptismal services.
