It’s like going public with your decision, telling the world that you identify with Jesus Christ. Baptism is a picture representing the death, burial and resurrection of Jesus Christ.

During baptism, a person is submersed in water signifying the death and burial of the individual with Christ. The individual is then raised up out of the water, signifying their new life in Christ.  If you have accepted Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior but have never been baptized by immersion we would like to encourage you to take this next step.

Baptism is an act of obedience to Christ as he commanded his followers to be baptized. It does not remove our sin, but is an outward expression of faith and transformation.
