What is Baptism?

Baptism is a step that every new follower of Jesus is encouraged to take. It's a public celebration of moving from death to life through faith in Jesus Christ.

Christians believe that baptism is a powerful way to carry the name of Jesus to the world. It's also the first step of obedience demonstrated by believers in the Bible. Jesus Himself was baptized before officially beginning His public ministry.

Baptism does not make you a believer in Christ. But it's an important way of telling our community that our relationship with and faith Jesus, has begun. It symbolizes our old self being gone (going under the water) and our new self being made alive (coming above the water) in Christ.
