What is it?

Baptism is the next step after you’ve decided to follow Jesus. Jesus both modeled and commanded baptism. It’s a symbol that tells the world that you’re now living for Him.

Baptism is not what saves you or makes you a Christian. However, it is an outer symbol of an internal reality. Baptism is sort of like a wedding ring. The ring doesn’t make you married, but is a symbol of your love and devotion to your spouse. Baptism symbolizes that you love Jesus and are committed to Him.

The Bible describes baptism as:

  • a sign of identification with Jesus (Acts 8:36-38).
  • symbolic of dying to your old life and rising again to new life in Christ (Romans 6:4-5).
  • a step of obedience to Jesus’ commands (Matthew 28:19-20).

Sign Up to be Baptized

Baptism happens at every Rock Bridge campus on the third Sunday (and preceding Thursday in Dalton) of each month. Creek Baptism is scheduled for Sunday, May 20 at the Evans Farm.
