Baptism

Baptism is a physical, public action that declares a person has received life in Jesus Christ through faith in His sacrifice for them. In the New Testament, baptism was so closely tied to becoming a Christian that everyone who pledged to follow Jesus was automatically baptized (see Acts 8:34-40; 16:29-34)

At Grace we believe that a person should be baptized because it is a

  • Command from Jesus Christ to all who believe in Him. (Matthew 28:18-20)
  • Declaration to the world that a person belongs to Jesus Christ and is receiving the benefits of His eternal life, forgiveness and Holy Spirit. (Galatians 3:26-29)
  • Demonstration that a person is one with Christ's death and resurrection through faith (Romans 6:1-7)
