Baptism does not save us. It’s a symbol of the salvation that has already taken place in your life. Baptism is the public expression of your faith in Jesus and communicating to the world your heart-felt commitment to following Him. We believe that water baptism is a public declaration of three important things:
- You are a follower of Jesus Christ.
- You are beginning a changed life in Christ.
- You are part of a new family.
If you have accepted Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior and have never been baptized, then baptism is your next step. If you have ever (as an infant, child or adult) been baptized by water (sprinkling or immersion), you do not need to be baptized again. If you are wanting to renew your commitment or seeking to rededicate your life to God, the best action is for you to get connected in a small group and focus on growing your relationship with God.
Covenant celebrates baptisms with our congregation during our weekend services on the fourth weekend of every month. If you are ready to take the next step towards baptism, or want to know more about the process, please contact us. We would love the opportunity to meet with you to discuss your spiritual journey and to access your readiness and understanding of baptism.
