What is baptism?
Baptism is an outward expression of an inward change. It’s how you tell others about how Jesus changed your life. Being baptised shows others that you’ve decided to follow Jesus, and allows them to celebrate and contemplate this decision (Acts 16:31-34).
Why is it important?
If nothing else, we are to be baptised simply because Christ commanded (Matt.28:19), so obedience to Christ’s command and we see that this is the Biblical pattern of what the early church practiced. Paul said through baptism we are united with Christ and finally it unites us to all Christians.
Who can be baptised?
Baptism is intended only for those who have made a confession of faith in
Jesus Christ and can also give a basic testimony to the elementary aspects of the Christian faith. If you are unsure, please contact one of our pastors.
