Baptism is a long and cherished practice of the church that is both symbolic and meaningful. Images of death and resurrection are symbolically displayed by the immersion of the follower into the water and then raising him or her up out of it.
“Baptism is an opportunity to publicly identify with Jesus in His death and resurrection. It is a sacred and beautiful opportunity to declare that I am a sinner in need of a Savior. I believe Jesus is God’s only provision of a Savior, so I am trusting Him for my forgiveness and righteousness, and I am committed to following Him - daily dying to myself and allowing the resurrected Christ to live in and through me.”
Baptism is not a means of salvation; rather, it is a beautiful picture of our union with Christ and our declaration that we join Him as a people who are now living for His purposes.
Your next opportunity to be baptized will be at Burdette Pool on Sunday, July 31. Those who are middle-school aged and older can complete the required ONLINE CLASS at your own pace by Monday, July 11. The class includes a series of four 2-3 minute videos followed by a few questions to complete. Everyone will record their testimony on Sunday, July 17 at either 9:15 or 10:45 AM.
