What is Baptism?

When Christians are baptized, they fulfill the command of Jesus (Matthew 28:19–20) and are submerged in water to identify with the death of Jesus and rise out of the water to identify with His resurrection (Romans 6:1-10; Colossians 2:22).

This identification with the death, burial, and resurrection through baptism testifies to the fact that we believe in faith that Jesus died for our sins, was buried, rose three days later, and now is alive and Lord over all of creation.

Who should be baptized?

If you’ve made a commitment to Jesus, we encourage you to follow Jesus’ command to be baptized as a public profession of your faith in Him.

If you haven’t made a commitment to Jesus, you can learn more about Him and see what it means to be a follower of Jesus, and to talk with a Christian friend or a church leader about it. We then invite you to be baptized to make public confession of your faith.

If you have anymore questions or are interested in baptism, please contact us.
