What a person believes about baptism effects if/how they perform baptism.
Baptism is the immersion of a believer in water to represent their identity immersed in the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. It is an act of scriptural obedience symbolizing the believer's faith in a crucified, buried, and risen Savior. It signifies a person death to sin, the burial of the old life, and the resurrection to walk in newness of life in Christ Jesus. It is an outward expression to their inward belief that since Christ resurrected they will too.
Baptism is intended for those who have professed faith in Jesus Christ and can give testimony of doing so. We baptize by immersion because it is not only the original significance of the word but also it best symbolizes the reality to which baptism points—our death and resurrection in Christ.
If you have not been baptized following salvation, we ask you to take this step, which in scripture is shown to be a believer’s initial step in their faith journey. We believe that understanding baptism biblically will allow your personal baptism to be an enriching experience. To help prepare you for baptism we have provided some resources for you that help you uncover the biblical significance of baptism and gives you an opportunity to develop your written testimony.
