BAPTISM AT IMMANUEL
What is baptism?
The simplest definition is this: an outward expression of an inward change. In other words, baptism isn't about getting saved. That's already happened (inward change). Baptism is your opportunity to express the change that's taken place in your life since you placed your trust in Jesus. Baptism is your next step after you’ve said “Yes” to Jesus!
Why should I be baptized?
Jesus Himself was baptized, and after His resurrection, He instructed His disciples in Matthew 28:18 & 19: I have been given complete authority in heaven and earth. Therefore, go and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit.
Throughout the New Testament, we read about people who believed in the risen Christ, and then were baptized. Acts 3:41: Those who believed what Peter said were baptized and added to the church, about three thousand in all.
When can I be baptized?
Sunday morning baptism dates are scheduled regularly, and are announced from the stage and included in the weekly email updates.
What are my options?
1. You may choose to be baptized during one of the Sunday morning services (9 or 11 AM).
2. You may decide to be baptized at a private time, with your friends and family in attendance.
