WE BELIEVE

EvFree Fullerton Church believes that...

Water baptism is an ordinance given by Christ to His church. (Matthew 28:19)

Baptism by immersion is the mode used by Christ and the early church. 

Water baptism is to be observed in the present age. (Acts 2:38; 8:12; 16:14–15)

Water baptism is not to be regarded as a means of salvation. It is a public act by those who have already received Christ as their personal savior. (Ephesians 2:8–9; Acts 8:36–38)

Baptism is...

A symbol of the believer’s identification with Christ’s death, burial and resurrection. (Romans 6:3–7)

A public testimony of one who has received Jesus Christ as his/her personal savior. (Acts 8:36–38)

An act of obedience modeled and commanded by Jesus Christ. (Matthew 3:13–17; 28:19)

A statement to the world that the individual being baptized is dedicated to Christ and desires to follow Him.

BAPTISM PURPOSE: A BRIEF THEOLOGICAL FRAMEWORK

Baptism is so important, in part because it is commanded by Jesus. Often, we fail to see the larger scope of its significance. The following Scriptures help communicate this significance.

Genesis
1:1–2

Genesis
6:11–14

Exodus
14:19–30

Ezekiel
36:24–25

Matthew
3:13–17

Matthew
28:19–20

So what’s the point?

The Scriptures in the Old and New Testament reveal how God uses water to represent His creative and redemptive work in the world, climaxing in the work of Jesus, revealed in baptism.

What’s the relevance of baptism to the follower of Jesus?

In the waters of baptism, Christ buries your old self so that you can walk in new life (Romans 6:1–4).

From the above Scriptures, what is most significant for you in understanding the beauty of baptism? How can your own baptism remind you of what Jesus has done on your behalf?
