Baptism

We believe that water baptism is a Christ-ordained testimony signifying the believer’s prior union and baptism into the body of Christ (Matthew 28:18-20; 1 Corinthians 12:13), in His death, burial, and resurrection (Romans 6:3-5; Colossians 2:12) by the Holy Spirit.


We believe the Scriptures teach immersion as the preferred mode of water baptism (John 3:23; Matt 28:18-19; Acts 2:38-39; Acts 8:37-39; Acts 10:47-48; Acts 16:15, 33; Acts 18:8; Acts 19:1-5, etc.).


We believe proper candidates of Baptism are only those who give credible evidence of repentance and belief in Christ as their Savior (Matthew 3:2-6; Acts 2:37-38, 10:47).
