Baptism is something Christians have been doing for thousands of years to symbolize their faith in Christ. It’s a public declaration of a new association. We believe and teach that baptism is commanded by our Lord and His apostles (Matthew 28:19; Acts 2:38), and that all believers professing faith in Christ must be baptized. We believe and teach that baptism should occur upon confession of faith in Christ, as modeled for us in Acts (Acts 2:38-41, Acts 8:35-39; Acts 16:31-33). Baptism by full immersion is taught in Scripture and portrays the death, burial and resurrection of Jesus Christ as well as cleansing from sin. Baptism is a demonstration of our willingness to live obediently under the Lordship of Christ and is also a sign of fellowship and identification with the Church, which is the visible body of Christ (Acts 2:41-42).
