What is baptism and why is it so important?
The Bible teaches us that, apart from a person’s initial acceptance of Jesus as Lord of their lives, that water baptism is vital to our growth as Christians. Jesus Himself was baptized in water (Luke 3:21) when He lived on earth and what better example do we have than Him? The water itself is not what is important; it’s the symbolism of the water is what is important. When a person accepts Jesus and then goes on to be baptized in water, it signifies death to the old way of life and embracing a new life and way of living in Christ (Acts 2:38).
Please bear in mind the act of Baptism involves complete immersion in water. For this reason, we ask you to be sure to wear dark-colored clothing and bring a change of clothes and a towel.
