As we commit our lives to Jesus, we desire to identify with him in his death, burial, and resurrection. Our community of faith celebrates with each one who publicly embraces Jesus in this unique and powerful way.
We follow Jesus' example into the waters of baptism to publicly profess our desire to follow him wholeheartedly, laying down our old selves and walking in newness of life. As we go under, we confirm our belief that our sins are forgiven and as we come out of the water, we are resurrected to a new life in Christ.
And the How...
We have water baptisms a few times each year, during services so that we can all celebrate together as a church! If you are considering getting into the tank, here is what you should do...
The first step in our journey of faith in Christ is to recognize our sin before God and our need for a Savior. We must repent, accepting his free gift of salvation, and commit our lives to following Jesus. Romans 10:9-10; Ephesians 2:8-9
After making a choice to be a Christian the next step is to let somebody know! Your family wants to celebrate with you, and we'd love to help you on your journey to be more like Jesus. 1 Peter 2:9
Let us know you want to be included the next time we have baptisms at Capital Life Church and we will get you added to the list, give you details so you can prepare, and answer any questions you may have. We'll also reserve you a t-shirt to keep.
One of the best parts of our baptism services is getting to hear briefly from each person about to get dunked! Prep a 30 second testimony about why you decided to take the plunge. 1 Peter 3:15
