Baptism by immersion is a public declaration of your faith in Jesus Christ and a meaningful symbol of what He has done for you. It is a special privilege for every believer. When baptized, you are following Jesus' example and obeying what He commanded.
Baptism symbolizes death and life.
When you receive Christ, you begin a new life (2 Corinthians 5:17). You die to self and are born again in Him (John 3:3). Being immersed in water represents a burial for your old life (Romans 6:3-4). Coming up out of the water represents resurrection (Romans 6:4). It reminds you and tells others that you’re starting a new life.
If you have questions or would like to be baptized, contact Pastor Dan Thornton.
