What is Baptism


Baptism is the outward expression of your inward decision to follow Jesus Christ. Baptism symbolizes going to from death to life. In Romans 6, we are taught that in the same way Jesus died and was buried, our old way of life is put to death and buried with Him as we are submerged under water. Then, like Christ, we come out of the water to new life and new way of living just as Jesus resurrected to new life on the third day. This public faith ceremony allows us as Christians to individually follow and surrender to Jesus’ example and lordship.
