What Does The Bible Have To Say About Baptism? Part 1

It illustrates Christ’s death, burial, and resurrection.
“… Christ died for our sins … he was buried … and he rose again.” (1 Corinthians 15:3–4)
“For when you were baptized, you were buried with Christ, and in baptism you were also raised with Christ.” (Colossians 2:12)
It illustrates your new life as a Christian.
“When someone becomes a Christian he becomes a brand new person inside. The old life has passed away and a new life has begun!” (2 Corinthians 5:17)
“By our baptism then, we were buried with him and shared his death, in order that, just as Christ was raised from the dead … so that we may live a new life!” (Romans 6:4)
Baptism doesn’t make you a Christian. Only your faith in Christ does that. Baptism is like a wedding ring; it’s the outward sign of the commitment you have made in your heart.
Throughout the year, we gather as a church family to celebrate with people who have made a commitment to following Christ. The baptism service is actually a celebration; it’s a chance for the church to come together to celebrate what we’re all about: helping people discover and grow in their relationship with Christ.
Are you a Christ-follower who would like to be baptized THIS WEEKEND after one of our services? You can be baptized after our NEW SATURDAY Night service at 5pm OR Sunday after 8:30am, 10am or 11:30am.
