Water Baptism

Baptism by water is a public declaration that accompanies your decision to follow Jesus! It is one of the most exciting and powerful moments in your walk of faith because it is an illustration of your old life being left behind, making way for all the new that God has for you.

Common Questions

We understand that you may have some questions, so we’d love to help! To learn more more about what baptism is, how we baptize, and what's involved in sharing your story, read our frequently asked questions below.

Why do we practice baptism?

Jesus was baptized as an example for us to follow (Matthew 3:13-17). Since every person who surrendered their life to Jesus took this step, we believe it is important for us to do the same thing. God gave us baptism as the public culmination of putting our faith in Jesus.

DO WE BELIEVE BAPTISM IS REQUIRED FOR SALVATION?

We believe the only requirements for salvation are to: “declare with your mouth, ‘Jesus is Lord,’ and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead” (Romans 10:8-9). If you have done those two things, we believe you are saved.

I WAS BAPTIZED AS A CHILD, DO I NEED TO BE BAPTIZED AGAIN?

WHY DO WE BAPTIZE BY IMMERSION?

If you knew what you were doing when you were a child, you do not need to be baptized again!  Your relationship with Jesus may be stronger today than it was then, but that does not mean you need to be baptized again. However, if you do not remember if or when you were baptized, we would encourage you connect with us to talk about taking this step of baptism.
The word baptize in the Bible today comes from the Greek word "baptizo." This word meant to immerse under water and would have been used as a common term for things like washing dishes and laundry when you submerge them under the water for cleaning. Similarly, we are immersed in water to represent the inner-cleansing that has happened when we give our life to Jesus. Since baptism by immersion was practiced in the New Testament, we continue this practice today.

“The old life is gone; a new life has begun.”

2 Corinthians 5:17
