Baptism is an outward expression of an inner change. Baptism portrays to the world (both seen and unseen) that the participating individual has been redeemed by the Lord Jesus Christ and has made a personal commitment to follow Him.
Baptism is an act of obedience. Jesus left His disciples with the command to baptize His new followers. There is no salvation gained through baptism - it is an act of submission and obedience.
Baptism is a public declaration. Baptism declares to the world (both seen and unseen) that the participating individual is committing their lives to following Jesus.
If you are a Christ followers and have yet to be baptized then please contact Pastor Doug. Don't put off this important step of obedience.
