Baptism

WHAT IS BAPTISM?

The Bible clearly teaches that baptism is the first step of obedience after making a commitment to Christ. Baptism allows a believer to communicate to the world their heart-felt commitment to Christ. Baptism doesn’t make you a Christian; only your faith in Christ does that. Baptism is like a wedding ring – it’s the outward sign of the commitment you have made in your heart.

WHY IMMERSION?

  • Because Jesus was baptized that way (Matthew 3:16)
  • Every baptism in the Bible was by immersion (for example: Acts 8:38-39).
  • The word “baptize” means “to dip under water.”
  • It best symbolized a burial and resurrection (see Romans 6:1-11).

WHAT ABOUT CHILDREN?

The New Testament shows no example of baptism when the person did not request it. All instances of baptism followed an individual’s decision to trust Christ alone for their salvation (Acts 2:41; 8:12; 10:47-48). At New River, we wait until the child is old enough to believe and understand the true meaning of baptism before we baptize them.

WHEN IS THE NEXT BAPTISM?

Our next scheduled Baptism service will be on October 29th, but we invite you to reach out to us if you would like to get baptized before that date.  We want to remove any barriers between you and the next step! 

WHEN IS THE NEXT BAPTISM CLASS?

Baptism Class is a requirement for everyone desiring to be baptized, or you can have one-on-one discussion with us.

In this class we cover the meaning of Baptism, the significance of Baptism, details of the baptism event, and answer any questions you have.
