Have you ever thought about getting baptized but have too many questions still unanswered?
We would love to help you understand a little bit more about this significant, next step in your journey of following in the footsteps of Jesus.
Baptism is an act of faith and obedience to the commands of Christ. It declares that you are a follower of Jesus Christ. It is a public confession of your faith in, and commitment to Jesus Christ.
Baptism does not make you a believer; it shows that you already are one!
It’s a symbol of Christ’s burial and resurrection. Our entrance into the water during baptism identifies us with Christ’s death on the cross, His burial in the tomb, and His resurrection from the dead.
It’s meant to show the world that that you love, trust, and have put your hope in Christ.
Baptism also connects us to the ‘body of Christ’, his people in the earth. In baptism, there is a real sense of being joined with other believers, not just participating in an individual act of our own spiritual journey.
So, who should be baptized? Every person who has made the decision to believe in Christ.
Our baptisms are at Collier County’s Vanderbilt Beach right in front of the Ritz Carlton Hotel in Naples, Florida. All you need is your towel, bottled water and sun-screen. Garage parking is available and free if you have a Collier County Beach Parking sticker.
Call us at (239) 206-4450 if you would like to be baptized or send us an email to learn more.
“Therefore we are buried with him by baptism into death: that like as Christ was raised up from the dead by the glory of the Father, even so we also should walk in newness of life.” Romans 6:4
