Baptism is an outward display of an inward decision.
Are you ready to be baptized?
Simply put, baptism is an outward display and celebration of your inward decision to follow Jesus. It’s an act of obedience, a step of acknowledgement that is representative of the fact that Jesus died on the cross, was buried, and walked out of the grave alive so that each of us can have eternal life.
When you step into the water, you are letting the world know that you have walked into a new life of faith in Jesus Christ and that you are committing to follow Him down a new path. If you’ve made the decision to follow Jesus, baptism is the next step in your spiritual journey.
How should I be baptized?
“Baptism” comes from the Greek word baptizo, which means “to immerse.” Like Jesus, we should be baptized by immersion. That means going into the water, being immersed under the water, and coming back out of the water. It’s that simple!
