Baptisms Encourage the Body of Christ

There are many verses in the Bible about baptism. One great one is in Acts where Peter tells those who hear and believe the gospel to “Repent and be baptized . . .”

While baptism is not a rite required for salvation, it is an act of obedience practiced by believers after accepting Christ as a personal Savior as a testimony of death to sin and resurrection to a new life.

When celebrated by the church in genuine faith, baptisms confirm and nourish the body of Christ.

If you have accepted Christ as your personal savior but never been baptized, November 19 could be the day. Baptisms will be taking place in the Worship Center in all three services on that Sunday.

In addition to being an act of obedience, it is so encouraging for the rest of the church body when a new believer, or even an older believer, heeds this instruction, and publicly proclaims her or his identity with Jesus by being baptized. The spontaneous applause of those in attendance is an affirmation of this fact.

If you’d like to be baptized, please fill out the registration form here.
