Baptism is an outward declaration of an inward commitment to no longer live for ourselves but rather for Jesus. Acts 2:38 tells us, “Repent and be baptized, every one of you, in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins. And you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit…
Going under the water symbolizes that we have died to sin and that our old life of sin has been buried. Coming up from the water symbolizes that we have been raised to new life in Jesus Christ. Baptism activates our spiritual growth, as we rely on the Holy Spirit to mature us.
If you have made a commitment to Jesus Christ but have yet to be baptized, we encourage you to take this class, then publicly declare your commitment to Jesus through baptism.
Next Baptism class is on Sunday, March 17 at 9:30am. Baptism Sunday is March 24 at 10:45am.
