"Baptism" literally means to be submerged in water. Water Baptism is an outward act that symbolizes an inward washing away of sin and a new life as a follower of Jesus.
Is Water Baptism for Me?
Water Baptism is for anyone who has become a believer and follower of Jesus as their Lord and Savior. We encourage all who have made a decision to follow Christ to be Water Baptized. It is part of being a disciple (disciplined follower) as taught by Jesus: “Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit” (Matthew 28:19).
If you were baptized as an infant—but have made a decision to follow Christ as an adult—we encourage you to be Water Baptized based on your new personal faith.
