Water baptism is an outward expression of what God has already done inside of us. It is a proclamation stating that we are no longer part of the world and are “dead to sin but alive to God”. We are identifying with Christ’s death, burial and resurrection (Rom. 6:1-14 and Acts 8:26-39).
Since baptism is an outward symbol of new life through repentance (a turning away from sin) and salvation in Christ, in order for your baptism application to be approved, you must be willing to affirm that you are not currently living in a state of perpetual sin, such as ongoing drug or alcohol abuse, cohabiting, engaging in premarital sex, living a homosexual lifestyle, etc.. (See Luke 3:7-8, Matthew 3:8, 2 Cor. 7:8 and Acts 3:19)
Every believer is commanded to be baptized in water as Christ was (Acts 2:38-41). If you have not yet been baptized in water since you believed and you want to, please fill out the form at the bottom of this page.
Read the story in the book of Acts about the Philippian jailer (Acts 16:25-34)
See how God requires nothing on our part to forgive us of our debts (sins) and opens the prison doors for us to go free. Also see how the jailer saw his need for salvation and note his response to the call to be saved.
Each candidate for water baptism must be old enough to understand and decide for themselves to be baptized.
Baptism will be held Wednesday nights. Our required baptism class will be at 6 PM in the conference room the Wednesday the night of baptism. Please bring a towel and the clothes you plan to be baptized in when you arrive at the Church on the day of your baptism. Please be discreet in your attire. No dresses, skirts, swimsuits or white clothing.
Being baptized in water is a very special opportunity for you to share your testimony with your friends and relatives, so we want to encourage you to invite them to the water baptism service.
For further information, please contact the Church at (727)210-5433.
