Baptism Class

9:00 AM09:00

Baptism Class

Baptism is a symbol of your new life as a Christian. We bury the ‘old life’ and we rise to walk in a ‘new life’. Baptism is like a wedding ring, it is the outward symbol of the commitment you made in your heart, a commitment that has to be followed through and lived out on a daily basis.

Baptism does not make you a Christian.  Baptism does not “save” you, only faith in Christ does that. Baptism is a symbol. It’s meant to show the world that you love, trust, and have put your hope in Christ. 

If you are ready to be baptized as an outward statement to everyone who sees it that you have trusted Christ for your salvation and are committed to living for Him, your next step is to sign up for our Baptism Classe....
