WHAT IS BAPTISM?
Baptism is an important next step for every person who has made a decision to trust Jesus to forgive their sins and lead their life. It’s an outward expression of an inward change. It’s a public declaration of how Jesus has changed your life! It doesn’t “save” you, it’s just a symbol and celebration of salvation (2 Peter 3:21).
WHY SHOULD I BE BAPTIZED?
Because Jesus asks us to and He even set the example by being baptized himself (Matthew 28:19; Mark 1:9). Jesus “went public” in his love for us + when we are baptized, we “go public” in our love for Him (1 John 2:3; Acts 2:38-41)!
WHEN SHOULD I BE BAPTIZED?
Once you choose to follow Jesus, water baptism is an important NEXT step (Acts 8:12).
CAN KIDS BE BAPTIZED?
As parents, we can help point our kids to Jesus, but they are the ones who decide if they will commit their lives to Him (Romans 8:9). At Faith Bible, we encourage parents to wait until their kids are old enough to make their own decision to follow Jesus and understand what baptism means! When that happens, we are excited to celebrate baptism with kids!
