All humanity stands in need of salvation, which is only possible through faith in Jesus Christ. Salvation is the transformation of a person’s individual nature and relationship with God as a result of repentance and faith in Jesus.Salvation involves a change in the relationship between God and a person. It also includes personal renewal and transformation through the work of the Holy Spirit.
WHAT ARE WE SAVED FROM?
Salvation refers to our deliverance from the consequence of sin and therefore involves the removal of sin. (Romans 5:9; 1 Thessalonians 5:9).
WHO DOES THE SAVING?
Only Jesus Christ can remove sin and deliver us from sin’s penalty (2 Timothy 1:9; Titus 3:5).
HOW DOES GOD SAVE?
In the Christian doctrine of salvation, God has rescued us through Christ (John 3:17). Specifically, it was Jesus’ death on the cross and resurrection that achieved our salvation (Romans 5:10; Ephesians 1:7).
HOW DO WE RECEIVE SALVATION
We are saved by faith. First, we must hear the gospel – the good news of Jesus’ death and resurrection (Ephesians 1:13). Then, we must believe – fully trust the Lord Jesus (Romans 1:16). Then Peter said to them, “Repent, and let every one of you be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins; and you shall receive the gift of the Holy Spirit (Acts 2:38).
Romans 6:1-10; Colossians 2:12; 2 Corinthians 5:17
When Christians are baptized, they fulfill the command of Jesus (Matthew 28:19-20), are submerged in water to identify with the death of Jesus, and rise out of the water to identify with His resurrection.
This identification with the death burial and resurrection through baptism testifies to the fact that we believe, by faith, that Jesus dies for our sins, was buried, rose three days later, and now is alive and Lord over all of creation.
WHO SHOULD BE BAPTIZED?
If you’ve made a commitment to Jesus, we encourage you to follow Jesus’ command to be baptized as a public profession of your faith in Him.If you haven’t made a commitment to Jesus, we encourage you to learn more about Salvation HERE. Then after confessing your faith, we invite you to be baptized to make a public confession of your faith. It’s a declaration that the old has gone and the new is here (2 Corinthians 5:17)
WHAT SHOULD I WEAR?
Do wear pants (i.e. sweats, leggings, swim shorts, etc) NO JEANS!
Do wear under garments (i.e. underwear, bras, etc)
Do wear aqua socks or swim shoes.
Do bring a pair of shoes to wear after getting out of the pool.
Do bring a change of clothing and undergarments.
Do bring a swim cap if you are concerned about getting your hair wet.
Do not wear body lotion or baby oil.Do not wear jewelry.
Do not wear shoes or socks into the baptismal pool.
WHAT TO EXPECT?
You’ll see each person about to be baptized talking with one of the church leaders in the pool. They’re answering basic questions such as:
“Do you believe that Jesus is the Son of God?”
“Do you believe that your sin has separated you from God?”
“Have you repented of that sin?”
“Do you believe that Jesus died and rose, conquering Satan, sin and death?”
We say a short prayer as an affirmation of faith. You’re baptized by immersion in water in Jesus name.
