HIS WIN IS MERITED TO YOU
“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.” – Matthew 28:19
WHAT IS BAPTISM?
Baptism is the Christian act of immersing a believer under water and then bringing them forth out of the water. It is a representation of the gospel of Jesus Christ. That is, in being immersed under water, you are identifying with Jesus’ death; his death was in your place for your sin. In coming out of the water, you are identifying with Jesus’ resurrection; his resurrection conquered death. In Jesus, you have victory over sin and death. In baptism, you are identifying with Jesus’ life, death and resurrection; you are publicly expressing your faith (Romans 6:1-10; Colossians 2:12).
Baptism signifies our adoption into Christ, our cleansing from sin, and our commitment to belong to the Lord and to his church.
If you are interested in learning more about baptism, who should be baptized, or are wanting to be baptized, we invite you to attend the next Baptism Class. This, along with attendance at the Members Class, is a requirement for all wanting to be baptized at The Shore Church. This is a 1 hour class that runs periodically throughout the year.
If God leads you to be baptized at The Shore Church, we’ll be thrilled to experience this celebration with you!
