What is baptism? Depending on how you were raised or which denomination you were raised in, you may have a different view of what baptism is. Here is what we believe the Bible teaches about Baptism.
Baptism is an OUTWARD expression of an INWARD transformation.
Baptism produces sanctifying grace rather than saving grace. We are more conformed to the image (sanctified) of Christ as we obey Him in the call to be baptized.
- Which is why BAPTISM IS NOT “NECESSARY” FOR SALVATION but it is a response to salvation.
Baptism happens on the last Sunday of every month (with a break during the summer). In August, we celebrate Baptisms on the beach.
It is a symbol & a celebration. As a symbol, baptism illustrates a number of significant realities:
– It’s a symbol of Jesus’ death and resurrection.
– Your union and relationship with Jesus in His death and resurrection.
We are no longer living for our personal glory, but the glory of God.
– It’s a celebration of your new life in Jesus.
– Because BAPTISM IS A SYMBOL, IT DOES NOT HAVE THE POWER TO SAVE.
