Getting ready for water baptism
Start fresh with Jesus!
When you get baptized, you are saying the following three things listed below. If you’re in agreement with these statements and understand the significance of this act, then you’re ready to get baptized!
“I declare my allegiance to Jesus Christ as my Lord and Savior. I am disassociating from my old lifestyle, symbolically burying it by going down under water.”
“I associate myself with the message and person of Jesus Christ and wish to identify myself as one of His followers. As I publicly declare my faith, I am showing others that my heart is committed to Him.”
“I declare that I will fully yield myself to Jesus and to the Spirit of grace and fully immerse myself in His truth. I desire to know Him, love Him and obey Him, allowing Him to overtake my life—as symbolized by being fully immersed in water.”
Prior to being baptized, please sign up for water baptism at the booth outside the Sanctuary.
