We’re excited to walk alongside you as you look into being water baptised as your next step!
Water baptism is a significant event because you are showing publicly, in front of family, friends and church, that you are committed to following Jesus and living for Him. We think that is something worth celebrating!
As you prepare to be baptised there are some Biblical and practical information that will help you.
What is Water Baptism?
Baptism is an outward sign of a change that has already happened on the inside of your heart.
It is a symbol that you belong to Jesus and you have committed your life to Him. It is a public, outward declaration of your faith that associates you with the death, burial and resurrection of Jesus. This represents that you have left behind your old life and begun a new life following Jesus.
Colossians 2:12 “For you were buried with Christ when you were baptised. And with Him you were raised to new life because you trusted the mighty power of God, who raised Christ from the dead.”
Water Baptism is not something you do to receive salvation. You can still follow Jesus without being baptised and if you have accepted Jesus as your personal Lord and Saviour you will spend eternity with Him.
