Baptism: Baptism is an act of obedience that pleases God. It is a public statement that you belong to Jesus Christ and a witness to both believers and non-believers that Jesus is alive. Baptism is not a shortcut to heaven, nor does it save you or forgive sin. Baptism is a spiritual landmark in our Christian life.
Then Jesus came from Galilee to the Jordan to be baptized by John. But John tried to deter him, saying, “I need to be baptized by you, and do you come to me?”
Jesus replied, “Let it be so now; it is proper for us to do this to fulfill all righteousness.” Then John consented.
As soon as Jesus was baptized, he went up out of the water. At that moment heaven was opened, and he saw the Spirit of God descending like a dove and alighting on him. And a voice from heaven said, “This is my Son, whom I love; with him I am well pleased.”
Then Jesus was led by the Spirit into the wilderness to be tempted by the devil.
The people were waiting expectantly and were all wondering in their hearts if John might possibly be the Christ. John answered them all, “I baptize you with water. But one who is more powerful than I will come, the straps of whose sandals I am not worthy to untie. He will baptize you with the Holy Spirit and fire.”
We have baptism services on a regular basis. If you have a desire to be baptized, please contact our church office for information on our next baptism class.
