what is baptism?
Baptism is the church’s proclamation that we are who we are because God chose us, loves us, and calls us into his kingdom. In Baptism, we participate in Jesus’s death and resurrection by dying to what separates us from God and by being raised to newness of life in Christ. Baptism is an act of obedience that allows you to make a public declaration of your faith, declaring that you have given the steering wheel of your life to God. Baptism is not a condition of salvation, but rather a response to the redemption and love of Jesus. This is an important step in your journey as a follower of Christ, and an outward symbol of the work God has already done in your life.
