An Outward Sign of an Inward Decision!
Water baptism is a way for believers to outwardly express what God has done in their heart and lives in the presence of other believers. It is an incredibly powerful statement of what God has done in changing your life!
After you trust Jesus as your Savior the Bible directs that you need to be baptized in water. It’s a public proclamation of your repentance and identity as a follower of Jesus and acts as a symbol of these powerful changes in you. The scriptures say, "We were therefore buried with Him through baptism into death in order that, just as Christ was raised from the dead through the glory of the Father, we too may live a new life.” Romans 6:4
We baptize by fully immersing a person in water. Baptism represents a person's identification with Christ's death, burial, and resurrection. (Romans 6:3-8) When participants lie back in the water, it signifies the death of a sinful nature. When they come out of the water it illustrates their new life in Christ. Baptism is a response to salvation. We celebrate baptism because it represents a life changed by God!
