What do I need to know about baptism?

Christian baptism is an extremely exciting event and a great occasion for celebration for the whole church!

When we baptize by immersion in water, we see a great picture of the renewing work of the Spirit of God in the life of the person who has died to themselves and received new life through faith in Jesus Christ.

This is why we only baptize those who are willing and able to confess their faith in Jesus. Participating in baptism is also the way in which a believer publicly identifies with the body of Christ, the church.

In recognizing that baptism in the name of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit is Jesus’ desire for all those who follow Him, we require baptism prior to becoming a member of Heritage.
