Baptism is a joyous occasion. It marks a significant milestone. A bold step where you cross over from old to new. To a life of abundance, joy and hope in Christ Jesus.
For Christians, water baptism is a critical step of obedience (Acts 2:38). It’s a public testimony of your new spiritual birth and faith in the redemptive work of Christ on the cross.
We do not believe baptism should precede salvation.
Whether it’s full immersion or sprinkling (restricted to the physically impaired or seniority of age), baptism symbolizes your commitment to Christ. It’s the act of identifying with His death, burial and resurrection. Children candidates shall be 12 years and above; and prior permission sought with their respective parents. We do not baptize infants.
In Luke 11:37-41, a Pharisee who had invited Jesus to a meal noticed that the Lord did not first wash (baptizo in Greek) His Hands. It was customary for Jews to wash do so before partaking of food where bread is eaten. In the passage, Jesus emphasized that inner transformation is far more important than the outward ritual of holiness.
