WHAT IS THE MEANING OF BAPTISM?
According to the New Testament baptism is the symbol of Christ’s burial and resurrection.
Christ died for our sins, he was buried, he was raised on the third day. (1 Corinthians 15: 3-4)
Baptism is also a symbol of your new life as a Christian.
Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation. The old has passed away; behold, the new has come. (2 Corinthians 5:17)
Baptism does not make you a believer; it is an act of obedience after you already are one! Baptism does not “save” you; only Christ does that. Baptism is like a wedding ring—it’s the outward symbol of an inward reality of faith in Jesus.
The 2nd Sunday of each month has been designated as ‘Baptism Sunday.’ If you have questions or are considering taking this next important step in your faith, please call the church office or indicate your interest to be baptized on a Welcome Card and place in the offering plate.
