Baptism is a proclamation of faith!

We would love to have a conversation with you about this decision and answer any questions you have. You can email us at info@genesischurch.me or contact one of our pastors who would love to hear more about what’s going on in your heart.

We believe that baptism is a wonderful and powerful event that should be celebrated, and we would love to celebrate this event with you! Our next baptism Sunday is February 4th!!

Register for one of our upcoming baptism classes on January 21st or January 28th.  If these dates do not work for you, there is an option to speak with a pastor on an alternative date as part of the registration.

Want to Know More About Baptism?

We have a podcast called “Baptism – Going Public”  from 9.7.14 that you can listen to that will help you understand the heart behind the biblical practice of baptism. Below are some scriptures that teach about what baptism is, and why we should be baptized. We’d encourage you to read and pray about that if you are considering baptism. We are always available to visit with you about it!

 

What is Baptism?

When you come to faith in Christ, an inner change takes place. Baptism is the outward symbol of the inward commitment you have made to Jesus Christ. It is the first step of obedience in your journey with Jesus and a public statement of your faith. The waters of baptism do not save you. The Bible tells us we are saved by the mercy and grace of God. The Bible makes it very clear that baptism is a part of our commitment to Christ.

Additional commitments when you become a Christian include:

– Realizing your need for Christ (Romans 3:23; 6:23)

– Putting your faith in Christ (John 3:16)

– Turning from your sins (Acts 2:38)

– Verbalizing your trust and commitment by confessing Christ (Romans 10:9)

 

 Why Be Baptized?

The New Testament offers the following reasons to be baptized:

– To follow Christ’s example (Mark 1:9)

– To follow Christ’s commandment (Matthew 28:19)

– To demonstrate your faith (Acts 18:8)

 

 When Should You Be Baptized?

Baptism is for believers. A believer is someone who has decided to trust Christ alone for salvation. Believers realize that their sin separates them from God and that only Christ’s death on the cross bridges the gap between them and God.

If you have come to that point in your spiritual journey, then you are ready to be baptized. It is your way of demonstrating the internal miracle, in an external way, to the outside world. As soon as you have decided to fully receive Christ into your life and have begun walking in a new direction, you should be baptized! (Acts 8:35-38).
