Christian baptism is an important step in our faith journey. It is a public profession of faith and discipleship.
Baptism illustrates the death, burial, and resurrection of Christ. At the same time, it also illustrates our death to sin and new life in Christ. As we confess the Lord Jesus, we die to sin (Romans 6:11) and we are raised to a brand-new life (Colossians 2:12). Being submerged in the water represents death to sin, and emerging from the water represents the cleansed, holy life that follows salvation.
Romans 6:4 puts it this way: “We were therefore buried with him through baptism into death in order that, just as Christ was raised from the dead through the glory of the Father, we too may live a new life.”
Very simply, baptism is an outward testimony of the inward change in a believer’s life.
Our next Baptism Service is April 30, 2017.
