Doctrinal Statement: Baptism

The following statement is the proposed revision to our church’s doctrinal statement about water baptism.

We believe immersion in water to be the New Testament mode of baptism (Acts 8:36-39) to be administered only to believers upon their public confession of faith in Christ (Acts 2:41; 8:12). We believe that Jesus Himself commanded the ordinance (Matt. 28:19) to symbolize the believer’s death to the old life of sin and his spiritual resurrection to the new life in Christ (Rom. 6:1-4).
