Once we have committed our lives to Christ, the Bible clearly instructs us to signify that commitment through baptism. Baptism allows us to, first and foremost, identify with Christ and, secondly, with the local body of believers. Baptism is the second step of the HighRidge Spiritual Growth Track.
Water baptism says, “I want to live for Jesus and not just for myself!” If you have given your life to Christ and you haven’t been water baptized, we want to encourage you to get water baptized. This is a huge step in your walk with Christ, and we’d love to celebrate it with you!
What is the meaning of baptism?
Baptism illustrates Christ’s burial and resurrection. [Colossians 2:12]
Who should be baptized?
Every person who believes in Christ as their personal Lord and Savior. [Acts 2:41 | Acts 8:12]
Why should I be baptized?
To signify that you have received new life through Christ. [Romans 6:4]
To follow the example set by Christ. [Mark 1:9]
Christ calls us to be baptized. [Matthew 28:19]
Why should I be baptized by immersion?
Christ was baptized by immersion, therefore, we should be also.
Every baptism in the Bible was by immersion. ‘Baptizo’ in Greek literally translates to: immerse or dip under water.
When should I be baptized?
As soon as possible after you have accepted Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior.
What if I have already been baptized?
If you have been water baptized, your next step is to enter into community with other believers. Groups are the next step in the HighRidge Spiritual Growth Track.
