WHAT IS BAPTISM?
We understand from Scripture that baptism is the next step in your salvation story. Jesus commands his disciples in Matthew 28:18-20
18 Then Jesus came to them and said, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. 19 Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, 20 and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.”
Baptism represents that we are dying to our old self and then raised to the newness of life through Jesus. It is part of our salvation story. Romans 6:1-4
1 What shall we say, then? Shall we go on sinning so that grace may increase? 2 By no means! We are those who have died to sin; how can we live in it any longer? 3 Or don’t you know that all of us who were baptized into Christ Jesus were baptized into his death? 4 We were therefore buried with him through baptism into death in order that, just as Christ was raised from the dead through the glory of the Father, we too may live a new life.
If you have decided to follow Jesus then baptism is your next step! Maybe you have decided long ago to follow Jesus. Then this next verse is for you from Acts 22:16
And now what are you waiting for? Get up, be baptized and wash your sins away, calling on his name.'
