One of our favourite services is our baptism services when we get to celebrate with our friends who are taking this important and significant step in their faith journey. Our next Baptism Service is November 11th.
Baptism illustrates the death, burial, and resurrection of Christ. It also illustrates our death to sin and new life in Christ. 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 7, 2019. If you would like to be baptized please contact one of the Pastoral Staff.
