Water Baptism is not Salvation, the gift of Salvation is given to us by God through His grace and acknowledging the sacrifice of Jesus Christ. We encourage obedience to the Lord’s command of Water Baptism by immersion (Mt. 28:18-19). This act symbolically declares that a believer’s old sinful life died with Christ and that a new spiritual life with Christ has been raised. Therefore, in order to be considered for baptism, a person's life should reflect their new life in Christ and their commitment to obeying his Word. Candidates for Water Baptism must be of an age and understanding that they need to have a personal experience with God. We fully immerse the candidate in water symbolically representing the death and resurrection. Water Baptism is simply a person choosing to follow Jesus Christ and His teachings, openly proclaiming that you are a Christian. We baptize in the name of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. Matthew 28:19-20. Water Baptism takes place several times throughout the year. For more information, contact the church office at 612.722.6687.
