WATER BAPTISM

 

Jesus set the example for us when He was baptized.  Though He was entirely sinless, He did it out of obedience to the Father.  In all things, Jesus was obedient and He set the stage for us.  The Bible teaches us that first we believe and then we are baptized.  There are different forms of baptism and many churches baptize infants as a dedication to the Lord.  The timing and methodology of baptism are areas in which churches can agree to disagree.  We respect and honor the differences within denominations. 

 

We believe that baptism is an outward sign of our inner change.  If you have accepted Jesus as your Lord and Savior, we encourage you to be baptized.  If you were baptized as an infant, you may wish to be baptized again as a testimony to God's work in your life.  No pressure!  God will guide you as HE desires. 

 

Matthew 3:13-17  

Then Jesus went from Galilee to the Jordan River to be baptized by John.  But John didn’t want to baptize him.  “I am the one who needs to be baptized by you,” he said, “so why are you coming to me?”  But Jesus said, “It must be done, because we must do everything that is right.”  So John baptized him.  After his baptism, as Jesus came up out of the water, the heavens were opened and he saw the Spirit of God descending like a dove and settling on him.  And a voice from heaven said, “This is my beloved Son and I am fully pleased with him”

 

 

Acts 2:38 

Peter replied, “Each of you must turn from your sins and turn to God and be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins.  Then you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit.
