BAPTISM IS A BEAUTIFUL, PUBLIC DECLARATION OF YOUR COMMITMENT TO FOLLOW JESUS.
Jesus instructed us to be baptised once we have placed our trust in God, so baptism becomes a step of obedience in our walk with Him. While it is not necessary for salvation, it demonstrates submission to God. We immerse at Calvary Burlington because we believe Scripture shows that Jesus modelled this for us as the way to publicly acknowledge our faith in Him.
What is baptism?
Baptism is a faith event and celebration where believers decide to turn from their sin and follow Jesus Christ.
Who should be baptised?
Every person who believes in Jesus Christ should be baptised. Believers realize their sin separates them from God. They conclude that Jesus Christ’s death on the cross bridges the gap between them and God. Having decided to trust Jesus alone for their salvation, they follow Him in baptism as a marker of their new life in Christ. (See: Matthew 28:19-20).
What is the meaning of baptism?
Baptism is an outward sign of an inward change. It illustrates Jesus’ death, burial and resurrection and at the same time represents our new life in Christ. (See: 1 Corinthians 15:3-4; Romans 6:3-4)
