Why Do We Baptize
To follow the example of our Savior, Jesus Christ. — Matthew 3:16-17

To follow the command of our Lord, Jesus Christ. — Matthew 28:19-20

To give public testimony of “who” you are and “whose” you are. Baptism is a picture of the death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus Christ. As you stand in the water, it is a picture of His life. As you submerge into the water, it symbolizes His death. When you rise out of the water, it beautifully illustrates His resurrection from the dead.

Here is another picture of what happens spiritually during baptism: as you stand in the water, this action represents your old life before Christ. As you submerge into the water, you identify with Christ’s sacrifice, death, and burial to purchase your salvation. Then, coming out of the water, you rise to walk a new life with Christ as His disciple! — Romans 6:4
When Do We Baptize
As you place your faith in the Lord for Salvation, you should be baptized.  — Acts 8:12

In Acts Chapter 2, God’s Word was preached, three thousand believed on Jesus, and they were immediately baptized in obedience to Him and His command. — Acts 2:41
How Do We Baptize
Baptism comes from the word 'baptizois' which means to “immerse." — Mark 1:9-10 and Acts 8:38
The Blessings of Salvation
Salvation is a gift from God and not something you earned. It is unconditional and permanent. A key issue as believers is the assurance of our salvation. God wants us to know that we are saved. Here are some additional verses that assure us of God’s love and eternal security.
— 2 Corinthians 5:17, Ephesians 2:8-9 and 1 John 5:11-13
