Baptism is one of the most treasured acts that we practice as a church family. It is the first step of faith in following Jesus for a new believer.
Jesus commanded his disciples,
"Go therefore and make disciples, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit..."
Water baptism is a rich symbolic act that displays your faith in the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ, as well as your act of dying to sin and living a new life by the power of God's Spirit in you.
If you have put your trust in Jesus for the forgiveness of your sins and the eternal life that He gives, baptism is the biblical way to publicly identify yourself as his follower.
