Get Water Baptised
Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come: The old has gone, the new is here!
2 Corinthians 5:17
Water baptism is a commandment of our Lord Jesus Christ. When we are immersed into the water during baptism, we identify ourselves with Jesus in his death and burial. When we are raised up out of the water, we identify ourselves with the resurrection of Jesus and the hope of eternal life. It also demonstrates His Lordship as well as the new birth available in Him.
We believe baptism is an exciting part of a new believer's journey. It's a public declaration that you follow Jesus, and it's an opportunity for the church to celebrate your faith with you! If you have recently made the decision to follow Jesus, getting water baptised is the perfect next step for you!
Water Baptism FAQs
What is water baptism?
Why do we baptise?
Jesus commanded us to baptize (Matthew 28:19-20), and we are following His example when we do it (Mark 1:9). It is a symbol of how we were spiritually buried with Him and raised for new life when we accepted His salvation.
Is baptism a part of salvation?
No. We are saved by faith and God’s grace, not by any religious works (Ephesians 2:8-9). Baptism is to salvation what a wedding ceremony is to a marriage. The wedding doesn’t legally make anyone married- that happens by the signing of a marriage license as witnessed by a church leader or court official. Baptism, like a wedding ceremony, is a public display of our love for someone- in this case, Jesus!
Why is baptism done publicly?
Almost all of the biblical examples of baptism show people doing it in public (Acts 2:41), because we are not to be ashamed of Jesus when we have become Christians. We should want to share our joyous decision with family, friends, and our church.
Why do we baptize by immersion?
Who can baptize?
How soon should we be baptized?
In the New Testament, we see people being baptized immediately after salvation, as a first and public step of obedience to Jesus (Acts 2:41, 8:38-39, 10:47-48). We would encourage you to be baptized as close as possible to your date of salvation. There is no scriptural reason for waiting.
What if I was baptized before getting saved? What if I was baptised as an infant? Does this fulfil the New Testament mandate of water baptism?

During your meeting, you will be able to ask any questions that you may have about baptism.
