Salvation & Baptism
The most important question to ask yourself is, “Have I come to a point in my life where I have invited Christ to forgive me and to take control?” If your answer is “no” or “I’m not sure,” I want to encourage to watch this short video explaining the need we all have for Christ to forgive us and take control of our lives.
It could make an eternal difference in your life! If you would like to talk with a pastor about this decision, please fill out the form at the bottom of the page.
Baptism is an outward symbol that a person has entered into a relationship with Jesus Christ. It symbolizes what has taken place inwardly at the time of our salvation: our acceptance of Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior.
It can also be described as:
- Our sharing in His death and resurrection illustrated by going under the water, dead to our old life, then rising again in new life.
- Our being symbolically washed clean, our sins being forgiven by His death on the cross.
When we are baptized, we aren’t only following Jesus example, but we are obediently following one of his commands. For us, it is the opportunity to share with the world that we know follow Christ. Baptism is the first and crucial step of obedience in a new and growing relationship with God.
