“Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost:…”
Baptism symbolizes our identification with Christ’s death, burial, and resurrection. Through faith, we believe that we, too, will pass from physical death to eternal life. Although baptism is not required for salvation, the act of being immersed in water is our public profession of faith. Symbolically, when we go down into the watery grave, our old life of separation from God dies. When we are raised up out of the water, a new life with God begins.
We baptize on the second Sunday in January, April, July, and October. If you would like to be baptized, please come forward when the pastor extends the invitation to Christian discipleship. The pastor will welcome you; the deacons will record your contact information; and the church will follow-up with you. On the day of your baptism, we will provide you with a white robe. Please wear all-black clothing and cover your head, if you do not want your hair to get wet.
