We want all people to know they are included and that they belong to God. Even before people come to faith, we want them to understand that they are loved and valuable to our Creator.
It is our primary purpose to lead individuals into a faith relationship with Jesus Christ. Believing involves turning from our way and turning to God's way. This is a faith that totally trusts Christ's finished work on the Cross and not our own efforts!
This is the ongoing part of our journey. Each day, as we get to know God better, we can draw closer to Him and become the people He has called us to be through the power of His Spirit.
Water baptism is a way for believers to outwardly express what God has done in their hearts and lives in the presence of other believers. When you are baptized in water, you are identifying yourself with Jesus. Family and friends are encouraged to attend and celebrate this significant decision.
If you have just made a Fresh Start with God and accepted Jesus as Lord of your life, you should be baptized. If you were baptized as a child before you understood what baptism meant, or if you have just rededicated your life to the Lord, then you should consider being baptized again.
We should be water baptized because Jesus was baptized and He is our example and because He commanded us to be baptized.
Mark 1:9 – At that time Jesus came from Nazareth in Galilee and was baptized by John in the Jordan.
Matthew 28:19 – Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit.
