Baptism

Baptism is an important milestone in your Christian walk. It is an outward expression of your inward confession and faith in Christ.

Why Should I Be Baptized?

  • To follow the example set by Jesus.   “At that time Jesus came from Nazareth and was baptized by John in the river.” Mark 1:9
  • Because Christ commanded it.  “Jesus said, ‘Go then, to all people everywhere and make them my disciples, baptize them in the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit, and then teach them to obey everything I have commanded you.’”  Matthew 28:19-20
  • It demonstrates that you really are a believer.   “We know that we have come to know Him, if we obey His commands.”   1 John 2:3

Baptism Schedule
