Christian baptism is one of two ordinances that Jesus instituted for the church. Just before Hisascension, Jesus said, “Go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age” (Matthew 28:19–20). These instructions specify that the church is responsible to teach Jesus’ word, make disciples, and baptize those disciples. These things are to be done everywhere (“all nations”) until “the very end of the age.” So, if for no other reason, baptism has importance because Jesus commanded it.
Out next baptism will be held on Sunday, April 26th at our 10am Celebration Service. If you or a family member would like to be baptized, please fill out the form below:
