Take the next step in your Faith
When should someone be baptized?
In the Bible, people are baptized at the first available opportunity after they have repented their sin and placed their faith in Christ. Baptism, which takes place before a person has placed their faith in Christ is not true baptism according to the Bible.
Why should someone be baptized?
- To follow the example set by Jesus.
“In those days Jesus came from Nazareth in Galilee and was baptized by John in the Jordan.” (Mark 1:9)
- Because Jesus said that all of His disciples should be baptized.
“Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I commanded you…” (Matthew 28:19-20)
- Baptism demonstrates that a person has truly believed the gospel.
“…many of the Coriinthians when they heard were believing and being baptized” (Acts 18:8)
