Baptism

What is Baptism

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.

How the Bible describes Baptism

As sign of identification with Jesus
(Acts 8:36-38)

As a symbol of dying to your old life and rising again to new life in Christ
(Romans 6:4-5)

When can I get Baptized?

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