We believe water baptism is a celebration of your decision to be a follower of Jesus Christ, a public announcement of your faith in and acceptance of Him. It is an important first step of obedience in a new life with Christ. Throughout the Bible, we see baptism as being the next step after salvation, and we see it as an exciting opportunity to declare that God has changed your life forever. Baptism is a visual representation of your old way of life being put to death and that you have been raised to new life in Christ. The old has gone, the new is here!
