Baptism

“Go ye therefore and teach (make disciples of) all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you…”
– Matthew 28:19, 20

BaptismalFor the true believer the verse before us should stop any debate about whether or not one should be baptized. The statement comes from the mouth of our resurrected Lord and Savior. These words come in the midst of what the church refers to as the Great Commission.

Believer’s baptism should be the first act of obedience in a new Christian’s life, and should follow the new birth as quickly as possible. But baptism must also be understood properly before any church baptizes and before any person is baptized. Baptism is only for believers. In other words, baptism is only for those who have publicly professed Christ to be their Savior, and who also believe in the resurrection. (Romans 10:8-13)

If you would like to be baptized, talk with Pastor David Salley or Associate Pastor Morris Baker.
