Baptism is an outward sign of an inward change. It’s a sign that your old way of living is gone, and you are becoming a new person. Going under water symbolizes Jesus’ death and burial. Coming up out of the water symbolizes Jesus’ resurrection, or coming back to life.
Our baptisms are public opportunities for you to share your faith, and for your church, family, and friends to celebrate what God is doing in your life. We baptize to follow both Jesus’s example and his instructions to his followers.
