“One Lord, one faith, one baptism,” Ephesians 4:5

What is Baptism?

As a church we stand on the Word of God. Baptism always follows belief. Once a person has decided to follow Jesus Christ, Jesus commands us to be water baptized. It is a public declaration of a change that has happened in the heart.

In Matthew 3:13-17 we see Jesus, humbling Himself in baptism at the hands of John the Baptist. This was the beginning of His earthly ministry. And then in Acts 8 we see Simon, a magician in Samaraia, who was quickly baptized after his confessed belief in Jesus Christ.
