Baptism


Baptism is both the public testimony of salvation and obedient response to Jesus’ command for Christians to be immersed under water and brought forth out of the water.

The Bible teaches that this is a practical representation or symbol of the supernatural work of salvation. While there is nothing we can do to save ourselves, including the act of baptism, we do believe it is a right response to receiving salvation. Colossians 2:12 tells us that a believer has “been buried with him (Jesus) in baptism, in which you were also raised with him through faith in the powerful working of God, who raised him from the dead” and as a result that believer is “baptized into one body” (1 Corinthians 12:13). Therefore baptism is both a public testimony of a new life found in Christ and a vow to live out this new life within a community of believers (Ephesians 4:4-5).

    I believe in God, the Father almighty,
    creator of heaven and earth.
    I believe in Jesus Christ, his only Son, our Lord,
    who was conceived by the Holy Spirit
    and born of the virgin Mary.
    He suffered under Pontius Pilate,
    was crucified, died, and was buried;
    He descended to the dead.
    The third day he rose again from the dead.
    He ascended to heaven
    and is seated at the right hand of God the Father almighty.
    From there he will come to judge the living and the dead.
    I believe in the Holy Spirit,
    the holy universal Church,
    the communion of saints,
    the forgiveness of sins,
    the resurrection of the body,
    and the life everlasting. Amen.
