Baptism is a very important and powerful first step in a Christian's life.
What is Baptism?
Baptism is something that God has asked every believer in Jesus to participate in to demonstrate physically and publicly that they are unified with Jesus in his death, burial and resurrection as the sole basis for their salvation. This act openly declares the believer’s faith in Jesus as Saviour and their commitment to follow Him as the Lord of their life. Salvation does not come by baptism but baptism is an essential step to demonstrate your salvation.
When should I get Baptised?
Some longer time Christians have held off being baptised because they have felt or believed they were not ready or yet good enough. But this mindset reflects a wrong understanding of baptism. You are to be baptised when you believe in Jesus, not when you are perfect. If you wait until you are perfect, you will never be baptised. Maturity comes from obedience and baptism is the first step of obedience that believers are commanded to take after trusting in the Lord Jesus.
How will I be Baptised?
We practice only believers baptism by full immersion. This is not merely our tradition but it is the form of baptism presented in the Bible and it is the only form of baptism that meaningfully demonstrates personal faith and union with the death, burial and resurrection of Christ to new life.
Baptism Services are held regularly throughout the year. It is a prerequisite before you are baptised to complete a baptism class to ensure you clearly understand the purpose of baptism for your life.
