SALVATION We believe that GOD, is the creator of the entire universe. That he has a purpose for each life including yours. To realize his purpose, GOD wants to begin a personal relationship with you. cccthe creator loves you, his plans for you are so much better than yours and lead to complete fulfillment. Perfection is not a requirement but faith is. This relationship starts with Jesus because he is the way to eternal life.
JOHN 14:6 Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me. Through Jesus’ death on the cross, and his resurrection from the dead, all of our wrongdoing is forgiven if requested. You need only repent of your sins, commit to following him, and believe Jesus is the son of GOD.
ROMANS 10:9 If you declare with your mouth, ‘Jesus is Lord,‘ and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. If you have made the decision to follow Jesus, Salvation is the beginning of God's gifts to you. Following his word will lead you to “What’s Next”.
BAPTISM is the outward expression of your faith that lets the world know your commitment to follow Jesus. Its the opportunity to “GO PUBLIC” with yourfaith.
What is the Meaning of Baptism?
Getting lowered into the water represents our sinful nature being dead and buried with Jesus, and as we are lifted out of the water we enter into a new life with Jesus. 1 Corinthians 15:3–4 For what I received I passed on to you as of first importance: that Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures, that he was buried, that he was raised on the third day according to the Scriptures.
Why Should I Be Baptized by Submersion?
To follow the example set by Jesus and every other follower of Christ. Mark 1:9 “At that time Jesus came from Nazareth in Galilee and was baptized by John in the Jordan.” Acts 8:38–39 “Then both Philip and the eunuch went down into the water and Philip baptized him. When they came up out of the water...”
Jesus commanded it. Matthew 28:19–20 “Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.” 1 John 2:3 “We know that we have come to know him if we keep his commands.”
