Those who believed and accepted his message were baptized... Acts 2:41
Scripture teaches that once we have received Jesus Christ by faith, we should be baptized. Baptism serves as an outward testimony of an inward change that results from faith in Christ.
It is not the act of baptism that makes you a believer or saves us. It's only by placing faith in Jesus Christ that ensures our salvation. The sacrament of baptism enables the believer to identify by faith with Christ. First in His death and burial and then also in His resurrection to the newness of life.
For when you were baptized, you were buried with Christ, and in baptism you were also raised with Christ. Colossians 2:12
We strive to follow Jesus and Biblical teaching as closely as possible in baptizing by immersion. Every baptism in the Bible was by immersion and Jesus was also baptized by immersion. We review this and other Biblical teaching on baptism in our required baptism class, which is generally held the Sunday before each scheduled baptism service. Check our calendar for the next class dates and baptism celebrations.
