“Then Philip opened his mouth, and beginning with this scripture he told him the good news about Jesus. And as they were going along the road they came to some water, and the eunuch said, “See, here is water! What prevents me from being baptized?”
Next Water Baptism: February 16
If you have made the decision to place your faith in Jesus as your Savior and to follow Him as Lord, your first step in obedience to Him is to be baptized. Just as a wedding ring is an outward sign of marriage vows that have been made, water baptism is a visible sign of the dedication of your heart to Christ; a public declaration of a private decision. As you are immersed in water, you identify with Christ in his death and burial, symbolizing the washing away of sin and the old way of life. As you are raised out of the water you identify with Christ’s resurrection, symbolizing that you are now raised to life as a new creation. Baptism is a sign to the church that you are now one of God’s holy people and these are the decisions we love to celebrate! If you are ready to take this next step fill out the form below.
