Baptism is going public with your faith in Jesus and communicating to the world your heartfelt commitment to following Him. If you have, by faith, through grace, called upon the name of the Lord for salvation, then baptism is your Next Step.

Simply put, baptism is an outward display and celebration of your inward decision to trust and follow Christ. It allows a Christ follower to communicate to the world their commitment to Christ. In Scripture, we see that people were baptized after they made a decision to follow Christ. They were immersed—which is symbolic of the fact that Jesus died on the cross, was buried and walked out of the grave, alive, so each of us can have eternal life. This is the pattern we follow at Northwest Bible Church.

Baptism is an act of obedience, a step of acknowledgment that you are committing to follow Jesus. If you’ve made the decision to follow Jesus, Baptism is the next step.
