Baptism

When you decide to “get right with God,” part of the “outward sign” of accepting Jesus as their savior is being baptized.

The Purpose of Baptism:
  • Water Baptism identifies the believer with the Godhead – Father, Son & Holy Spirit.

“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.” Matthew 28:19 (NIV)

  • Water Baptism identifies the believer with Christ in His death, burial and resurrection.

“When you came to Christ, you were “circumcised,” but not by a physical procedure. It was a spiritual procedure–the cutting away of your sinful nature. For you were buried with Christ when you were baptized. And with him you were raised to a new life because you trusted the mighty power of God, who raised Christ from the dead.” Colossians 2:11-12 (NLT)

“We were therefore buried with Him through baptism into death in order that, just as Christ was raised from the dead through the glory of the Father, we too may live a new life.”Romans 6:4 (NIV)

  •  Water Baptism is an act of obedience for the believer. It should be preceded by repentance, which simply means “change.” It is turning from our sin and selfishness to serve the Lord. It means placing our pride, our past and all of our possessions before the Lord. It is giving the control of our lives over to Him.

“Peter replied, ‘Each of you must turn from your sins and turn to God, and be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins. Then you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit.’ Those who believed what Peter said were baptized and added to the church–about three thousand in all.” Acts 2:38, 41 (NLT)

  • Water Baptism is a public testimony – the outward confession of an inward experience. In baptism, we stand before witnesses confessing our identification with the Lord.

We at Abundant Faith believe in total immersion water baptism and celebration of your decision. If you are interested in being baptized join us at 9:00 on the third Saturday of the month at our Taylor Ave location. One of our ministers will share with you what the scriptures command about Baptismal.

Your family and friends are invited to come share with you in your declaration that you have died with Christ and have been raised with Him to walk in newness of life during our 11:00 Sunday service.
