What About Baptism?

That is a bit difficult to do over the internet, as you may know, water and computers don mix.  This is also one of the reasons that finding a local Church is one of the first things that you need to do.  Most Churches offer baptism services and typically require it as part of becoming a member of the Church.  Here are a couple of quick thoughts on baptism and what it is etc.

Baptism is the public profession of your faith in Jesus, the outward expression of what Jesus did inside your heart.  It is a picture of the burial and resurrection of Jesus, and a picture of you "dying" to sin and being raised as a child of God.  Based on those ideas and several passages of scripture we believe that baptism should be done after you have accepted the gift of Salvation.  Based on the symbolic burial and resurrection and passages like Matthew 3:16 (KJV), we also believe that baptism should be done by being fully immersed in water.  

So once you find a local Church home speak to the Pastor or one of the other leaders in the Church and they can guide you further in the direction that you need to go.
