Should I be Baptized?

Baptism isn’t required for salvation, but is the first step of faith for believers. The baptismal waters don’t save anyone. It’s Jesus that does that. Baptism is a picture of the work that Jesus has done in a person’s heart.

Baptism illustrates Christ’s death, burial, and resurrection. (1 Corinthians 15:3-4) It shows our new life as a follower of Christ. (2 Corinthians 5:17) Baptism doesn’t make you a believer… it shows that you already believe. Baptism doesn’t save you; Jesus does! Baptism is like a wedding ring, signifying a relationship rather than forming that relationship.

We follow Jesus’ example in baptism. He was baptized (Mark 1:9), and commanded us to be baptized (Matthew 28:19-20).

When can I be baptized?

Once you have made a decision to follow Christ, you can request to be baptized during one of our worship services. We can typically baptize you in any of our Sunday services. You can come forward during the invitation time of our service and let us know you are ready to be baptized, or you can contact us. To contact us about baptism, please email or call the office at 334-289-0473. Our pastor will contact you to discuss your baptism.
