Are you ready to take the next step towards a closer walk with God? Sign up for the next baptism at Catalyst Church every last Sunday of the month!
Baptism is a symbol of Christ's burial and resurrection. Our entrance into the water during baptism identifies us with Christ's death on the cross, his burial into the tomb and his resurrection from the dead.
It's a symbol that shows the world that you love, trust and have put your hope and faith in God.
A believer has concluded that Jesus' death on the cross was a sacrifice for their sin and the only way to bridge the gap between God and us. By baptism, a believer is saying to the community, "I trust Christ alone for my salvation!"
If you are considering baptism, there are two important questions to ask yourself.
1. Have I made a commitment to have Jesus be the center of my life?
2. Am I ready to publicly share this life change with my community?
In Matthew 28:19 Jesus gives the "marching orders" for what Christians are to do with their one and only life. Jesus said,
"Go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age."
Baptism is not an act by which we are saved. It is an outward sign of what Christ has already done in our hearts. If you are unsure of where you stand with Christ, take your time. If you would like to read more about what the Bible says regarding baptism, check out these verses Romans 6:1-11, Acts 2:41 Acts 8:12 and again in Acts 10:47-48.
