What is Baptism?
Baptism is a step of obedience. In Matthew 3:13-16, Jesus set the example for us by being baptized to fulfill all righteousness. It is a statement of commitment (Romans 10:9-10) and serves as a public statement to tell others that we have surrendered our lives to Christ and that we believe in Him. Through baptism, we are declaring to the world that we belong to Christ and He is our Lord and Savior. Baptism is a symbol of the death, burial, and resurrection of Christ (Romans 6:3-11). Just as Christ gave His life for us and died, in making a decision to follow Christ, the person we were prior to becoming a follower of Christ is also dead. Modeling how Christ was buried and then resurrected from death, baptism shows our death to sin, being washed clean and now raised to walk in our new life in Christ.
- Who should be baptized?
Only those who trust in Jesus.
- Do you baptize babies?
We believe baptism is a personal choice after salvation. Our RevKids Team offers
Parent ChildDedication twice a year where we commit to partnering with you to raise your children to Love Jesus.
- Do you baptize children?
Yes, but we want to make sure they understand what baptism means.
- Do you baptize students?
Yes, with parental or guardian consent.
- Do I have to go fully under the water?
Baptism is a symbol of the death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus. By fully going under the water and being raised to life, we are following His example.
- What is the relationship of baptism to salvation? Baptism follows salvation, but not a part of it. It's a visual picture of what happened to us in salvation. (Acts 2:37-38; John 3:1-6; Mark 16:12-16)
- Why should we be baptized?
- It's a step of obedience.
- It's a public confession of becoming a follower of Jesus.
- It identifies us with the Church.
