Baptism — November 20, 2022
Baptism is an act of faith and obedience. It doesn’t make you any more saved, but it’s a public expression of the inward transformation because of your faith. Baptism identifies with the death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus, symbolizing the promise that the old is gone and the new is here. During baptism, you are fully immersed in the water, then immediately brought back up to represent the death of your old life of sin and the new life you have that’s marked by forgiveness.
Anyone (and everyone!) who has made the decision to follow Jesus and accept the free gift of salvation he offers.
We have baptisms several times a year, in the baptistery tank in our building. It is a full-immersion experience, where you go fully under the water, just like we read in scripture. It’s a time of celebration and we’d love to help you take this next step of faith!
“My life has been so much more clear and on track since following Jesus and now I do the best I can to lead my wife and daughter closer to Jesus as a husband and a father.”
“With Christ in my life I am free through him. The Lord has restored my heart, my marriage, and my family to something beyond what I could have ever dreamed of.”
“Before Christ I had no real knowledge of what sin was or how it kept me separated from God. After choosing to follow Jesus I’ve found life to be more peaceful and I more clearly see my need for him.”
Kids at Worship Center can be baptized after they make the decision to follow Jesus and we have a class just for them! Taking the Plunge is designed for students in grades 2-4. This multi-session class takes place during a Sunday service for four consecutive weeks and covers foundational biblical truths, the significance of being baptized, and the practical steps involved. Take a look at the upcoming classes below.
