Water baptism is a way to symbolically identify in the death (going into the water) and resurrection of Jesus (coming out of the water) – dying to our old life and ways, and rising into our new life in Christ. It isn’t necessary for salvation. It is an outward, public confession of an inward decision to follow Christ, and an important step in the life of a believer. Jesus said…
“Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit.”
Jesus led by example and was baptized as well (Matthew 3:13-17). We would like to celebrate this important decision with you!
