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).

When can I get baptized?

Baptism happens at every Rock Bridge campus on the third Sunday (and preceding Thursday in Dalton) of each month.
