What Is Baptism?
- We believe that baptism is a necessary step whenever someone decides to commit his or her life to Christ.
- We believe that the Bible teaches baptism, by immersion in water, to those who are old enough to make their own decision for Jesus is part of the formal process of becoming a Christian.
- We believe that the actual water doesn't necessarily do anything special (we believe that God's grace is what saves us), but it is commanded by Jesus.
- We believe that baptism symbolizes two things: the washing away of sins and the "old self" being buried with the "new self" raised with Christ.
Watch the short video below from our senior minister, Dr. Stephen "Doc" Pattison, about why baptism is so important to us.
