Baptism at Central Baptist Church

May 9, 2022


Thank you for your interest in baptism at Central Baptist Church. We believe that baptism is a significant expression of faith and a public declaration of one's commitment to follow Jesus Christ. In this comprehensive guide, we will explore the meaning of baptism, its importance, the baptism process, and how you can take the next steps towards being baptized in our faith community.

What is Baptism?

Baptism is a sacred practice that holds deep meaning for Christians. It is an outward symbol of the inward transformation that occurs when an individual accepts Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior. Through baptism, one publicly identifies with Jesus' death, burial, and resurrection.

It's important to note that baptism does not save a person, but rather serves as an act of obedience and a visible expression of an individual's faith in God. It is a beautiful way to proclaim one's dedication to following Jesus and becoming a part of the Church community.

The Significance of Baptism

Baptism signifies several important elements of the Christian faith:

New Life in Christ

When someone is baptized, they experience a symbolic death to their old self and a resurrection to a new life in Christ. The water represents cleansing and purification, washing away the sins of the past, and emerging as a new creation in Christ.

Forgiveness of Sins

Through baptism, believers experience the forgiveness of sins. Baptism symbolizes the washing away of sins and the presence of God's grace, cleansing the soul and renewing the individual's relationship with Him.

Belonging to the Christian Community

Baptism is an initiation into the Christian community. It marks the individual's entry into the Body of Christ, where they become part of the larger family of believers, united by their faith in Jesus.

Obeying Christ's Command

Jesus himself set an example by being baptized. He commanded his disciples to baptize others, and through baptism, believers demonstrate their obedience to Christ's teachings and commands.

The Baptism Process at Central Baptist Church

At Central Baptist Church, we conduct baptism services regularly throughout the year. Here is an overview of the baptism process:
