We believe water baptism should be performed with the same ceremony that the apostles baptized.
We believe in the baptism by immersion. It should be administered in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ for the remission of sins and only to persons who have reached the age of understanding.
We also know that water baptism do not save you but is an outward show of faith for God and a denouncing of all other affiliations to be identified with Christ Jesus.
When we are baptized we are symbolizing the act of Christ’s death and resurrection.
When we are immersed under the water it represents going into the grave and dying.
When we are brought back out of the water it represents being resurrected from the grave to live in newness of life.
Baptism is to be administered after one receives Christ as their Lord and Savior by faith. Baptism being the outward sign of an inward work that has already taken place.
