Baptism


Our next Baptism Celebration will be October 15th. If you want to be involved, let us know by contacting Pastor Frank.

We have baptism services every few months. During these services, we hear the stories of the people being baptized, celebrate with them as they are being baptized, and take part in witnessing what Jesus has done in their lives. 



What is Baptism?

Baptism is like a wedding ring.  A wedding ring is the outward symbol of a deep commitment. Baptism is one of the outward symbols of one’s deep commitment to live life the way Jesus wants us to. Baptism is simply a symbol that Jesus desires His followers to participate in.  It serves as an outward reminder of what He has done in our lives.  Specifically, Romans 6:1-7 explains the symbol: 

1. What shall we say then? Are we to continue in sin that grace may abound? 2. By no means! How can we who died to sin still live in it? 3. Do you not know that all of us who have been baptized into Christ Jesus were baptized into his death? 4. We were buried therefore with him by baptism into death, in order that, just as Christ was raised from the dead by the glory of the Father, we too might walk in newness of life. 5. For if we have been united with him in a death like his, we shall certainly be united with him in a resurrection like his. 6. We know that our old self was crucified with him in order that the body of sin might be brought to nothing, so that we would no longer be enslaved to sin. 7. For one who has died has been set free from sin.
— Romans 6
