Giving Forth Truth to the Next Generation
One of the most meaningful steps we can take as believers is to obey the Lord in water baptism.
For most people, this is a milestone event in their walk with Jesus and demonstrates in a visible manner a person’s internal decision to follow Christ. If you have trusted in Jesus Christ as your Savior and are ready to be baptized, it would be an honor for us to walk alongside you as you take this step in your spiritual journey.
According to the Bible, the symbolism of baptism declares that three things happen to believers who are baptized:
(1) they die with Christ to their old self;
(2) they rise with Christ to become a new creature; and
(3) they are incorporated in their new life with a living community which looks for the coming of the Lord (Romans 6:1-11).

In short, Jesus Christ commands baptism for His followers. "Then Jesus came to them and said, 'All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Go therefore 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 end of the age." (Matthew 28:18-20)
