It is always a tremendous joy for us when we have the privilege of Baptizing believers in the lord Jesus Christ.

Christian baptism is, according to the Bible, an outward testimony of what has occurred inwardly in a believer’s life. Christian baptism illustrates a believer’s identification with Christ’s death, burial, and resurrection. The Bible declares, “Or don’t you know that all of us who were baptized into Christ Jesus were baptized into his death? We were therefore buried with Him through baptism into death in order that, just as Christ was raised from the dead through the glory of the Father, we too may live a new life” (Romans 6:3-4). In Christian baptism, the action of being immersed in the water symbolizes dying and being buried with Christ. The action of coming out of the water pictures Christ’s resurrection.
In Christian baptism, there are two requirements before a person is baptized: 1) the person being baptized must have trusted in Jesus Christ as Savior, and 2) the person must understand what baptism signifies. If a person knows the Lord Jesus as Savior, understands that Christian baptism is a step of obedience in publicly proclaiming his faith in Christ, and desires to be baptized, then there is no reason to prevent the believer from being baptized. According to the Bible, Christian baptism is important because it is a step of obedience—publicly declaring faith in Christ and commitment to Him—an identification with Christ’s death, burial, and resurrection.

Any person who gives evidence of regeneration by acceptance of Jesus Christ as both Saviour and Lord, and who desires to confess Him publicly,  with the recommendation of the Pastor and the Board of Deacons, can be baptized.  Baptism will be administered according to Biblical standards.  Exceptions are made when illness or disability would prevent someone from being baptized by immersion, arrangements would be made for baptism to be administered in a diffrent manner.
