Water Baptism


According to the Bible, water baptism is simply a step of obedience and a public proclamation of one’s faith in Christ alone for salvation. It is important because it is publicly declaring faith in Christ, commitment to Christ, and identification with Christ’s death, burial, and resurrection. In water baptism, the action of being immersed in the water symbolizes being buried with Christ in His death. The action of coming out of the water symbolizes being raised with Christ in His resurrection. 

Two requirements should be met before a person is baptized:

SALVATION: You must be trusting in Jesus Christ alone as your Savior and Lord and be able to share a profession of your faith in him.

SYMBOL: You must understand and agree the symbol of water baptism is a public step of obedience to Christ and not how a person is saved (made right with God).

If you can fully affirm both of these statements, then nothing prevents you from being baptized at Plum Creek!
