What is Baptism?
Baptism is the outward expression of an inward decision. Baptism is a ceremony that symbolizes the spiritual cleansing that has taken place in your life when you placed your faith and trust in Christ and fulfills the command of Jesus. Baptism is an amazing picture of transformation. Being lowered into the water symbolizes dying to your old life without God. Being raised out of the water symbolizes coming to new life in Christ.
Baptism provides you an opportunity to publicly declare that you have believed in Jesus and have experienced God’s forgiveness of your sins. It is also a great time for the church to celebrate the change God has brought about in your life.
