Baptisms are why we exist as a church. They are a celebration of someone connecting to God, experiencing the new life a relationship with Jesus brings! It's the critical juncture where we get to celebrate together our mission being accomplished.
Baptism is linked by the Bible with some pretty important stuff:
- It is linked to the washing away of our sins (Acts 2:38; Acts 22:16).
- It is linked to us receiving the gift of the Holy Spirit (Acts 2:38).
- It is linked with the gospel message of Jesus' death, burial, and resurrection (Romans 6:3-4).
Anyone who is ready to acknowledge their faith in Jesus as Lord, Savior, and risen Son of God as well as being ready to turn from sin is a great candidate for baptism!
