Now why do you delay?
Get up and be baptized, and wash away your sins
by calling on His name. Acts 22:16

According to scripture why are believers water baptized by submersion?

Choosing to be completely under water (immersed) is a true picture of how the old sin nature dies and is buried (going under the water), as well as the resurrection, which is stepping into the new nature of the believer (coming up out of the water). Therefore we have been buried with Him through baptism into death, so that, just as Christ was raised from the dead through the glory of the Father, so we too may walk in newness of life.

Every believer is water baptized an act of obedience (Acts 2:38). This act is an outward testimony of the inward work of the Holy Spirit in a believer's life when personal faith is placed in Jesus Christ as saviour (Acts 8:27-29). Water baptism is symbolic to dying to oneself.

Baptism is a public testimony of faith in Jesus Christ and the work of the Holy Spirit in you. True Christianity is not just an agreement with a set of beliefs, but also evidence of changing from man's ways to God's ways (Romans 8:29). We believe it is important for your life to show evidence of change. This is not about being perfect, no-one is, but it's about beginning the process of taking on new beliefs, attitudes, actions and lifestyles by the work of the Holy Spirit that now lives in you.

The Bible says that all professing Christians should be baptized (Matthew 28:18-20). If you would like to get baptized, now is the time! We would love to celebrate with you.

on the day of your baptism:

BRING a towel and a dry set of clothes.
REMOVE belts, watches, phones and other things that don't like water.
WEAR a dark colored shirt and pants.
