We are excited that you are interested in baptism! We believe that baptism is an important step of obedience for every person who has accepted Christ as their Savior.
This page has been designed to explain baptism and the steps that need to be taken in order to be baptized at an upcoming service. If you have further questions, feel free to contact us . We consider it a privilege to walk with you as you take this next move on your spiritual journey.
What We Believe About Baptism
Christians believe that the blood of Jesus Christ, shed on the cross, provides the sole basis for the forgiveness of sin. Therefore, salvation occurs only when a person places his or her faith in the death and resurrection of Christ as the sufficient payment for his or her sin.
Who Should Be Baptized
If you have accepted Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior, then you are ready to be baptized. If you have any questions about how to begin a personal relationship with Jesus Christ, please contact us. Just as a bride and groom show others their love for one another by wearing wedding bands, your baptism is your opportunity to show others that you have accepted Christ and are now walking with Him.
What Baptism Symbolizes
Baptism is a way of showing others that you have entered into a relationship with Jesus Christ. It symbolizes what took place in your heart at the time of salvation:
* Accepted Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior.
* Shared in His death and resurrection, illustrated by going under the water (dead to your old life), then rising again (new life).
* Were symbolically washed clean, and sins were forgiven by His death on the cross.
Because Jesus instructed us to be baptized, baptism is an act of obedience. While it is not necessary for salvation, it demonstrates submission to God. We immerse at Redeemer Fellowship because we believe Scripture shows that Jesus modeled that for us as the way to publicly acknowledge our faith in Him.
