baptism

Water baptism is a joyful and public way to express your decision to follow the Lord Jesus Christ.

“Repent and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins, and you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit.” —Acts 2:38

Baptism is an identification event. Going under the water symbolizes the death of Christ. Coming up out of the water represents the resurrection of Christ. When we go under the water, it’s symbolic of the fact that we have died to ourselves and self-centered living. When we come back out of the water we are symbolizing our new life in Christ. God has forgiven all our sins and we have been given the gift of the Holy Spirit living inside of us!

From now on, if you let the Holy Spirit lead your thoughts and actions, and you build a deep relationship with Jesus, you will have the power to live a great and fulfilling life. You will not be perfect, but Jesus is perfect, and He will shine through you!
