What is the significance of water baptism?

Water baptism is believers’ identification with the death, burial and resurrection of the Lord Jesus Christ. It is the outward expression of our obedience to declare spiritual truth. Through baptism we declare we are dead to sin and are raised with Christ.

Who should be baptized?   

Every person who has believed in Christ should be baptized. “Repent, and let every one of you be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins; and you shall receive the gift of the Holy Spirit.  . . . And with many other words he testified and exhorted them, saying, ‘Be saved from this perverse generation.’  Then those who gladly received his word were baptized.” (Acts 2:37-41)

 When should I be baptized?

You should be baptized as soon as you have accepted Jesus as your personal Lord and Savior. (Mark 16:15-16, Acts 16:14-15)

When are baptisms performed?

Baptisms are performed the 1st Sundays of the month during morning service. Completion of water baptism class is required.
