Baptism is going public with your faith in Jesus and communicating your heartfelt commitment to following Him to the world. If you have, by grace, through faith, called upon the name of the Lord for salvation, then baptism is your Next Step.
Baptism is an outward display and celebration of your inward decision to trust and follow Christ. It allows a Christ follower to communicate their commitment to Christ to the world. 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 acknowledging that you are committing to follow Jesus. If you’ve decided to follow Jesus, Baptism is the next step.
