WHAT IS WATER BAPTISM?
Water baptism is a public expression of your faith in Jesus and communicates to the world your
heart-felt commitment to following Him. The old man, immersed in water, is dead and the new man is raised to life in Christ.
WHY SHOULD I BE BAPTIZED?
As a Christian, we believe that Jesus' death on the cross was a sacrifice for our sin and the only way to bridge the gap between God and us. When we choose to be baptized, we are saying to the community, "I trust Christ alone for my salvation!". It shows that we turn away from a life of sin toward Jesus, the only one who can change us (Acts 2:38-41).
If you are considering being baptized, there are two important questions to ask yourself:
1. Have I made a commitment to have Jesus be the center of my life?
2. Am I ready to publicly share this life change with my community?
WHY DO WE BAPTIZE?
In Matthew 28:19 Jesus gives the "marching orders" for what Christians are to do with their one and only life. Jesus said, "Go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age."
Water baptism is not an act by which we are saved. It is an outward expression of what Christ has already done in our hearts.
