We believe baptism is a necessary step whenever someone decides to commit his or her life to Jesus. We believe the Bible teaches baptism, by immersion in water, of those old enough to make their own decision for Jesus as part of the formal process of becoming a Christian. The actual water doesn't necessarily do anything special (we believe that God's grace is what saves us) but it is commanded by Jesus and symbolizes two things: the washing away of our sins and the "old self" being buried with the "new self" raised with Christ.
Want to know a little more about baptism? Think it might be the next step for you? Join us for a short 20-30 minute baptism class on June 4 right after our 11am service at 12:15pm. Our senior minister, Dr. Stephen "Doc" Pattison will lead you through the history of baptism and what it symbolizes.
