With our acceptance and belief in Jesus comes an incredible, life-altering gift: Salvation from our sin. Baptism is a public expression of the decision you’ve already made to follow him. It’s an important next step, an expression of that faith and just as Jesus was baptized when He was on earth, we are baptized to follow his example. When Christians are baptized, they are submerged under water to identify with the death and burial of Jesus and raised out of the water to identify with his resurrection. We believe that water baptism is a public declaration that you are a Christ follower, you are beginning a new life in Christ, and you are committed to following him throughout your life.
