FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
• “Do we need to be baptized to be saved?” NO! (Luke 23:42-43, Eph. 2:8-10) We do not need to be baptized to be saved, but baptism is something that should follow our salvation as an act of worship and obedience.
• “What is required for me to be Baptized?” The only requirements for you to be baptized is that you believe in Jesus Christ, and that you understand what baptism represents. Acts 8:36-37 “Now as they went down the road, they came to some water. And the eunuch said, ‘See, here is water. What hinders me from being baptized?’ Then Philip said, ‘If you believe with all your heart, you may.’ And he answered and said, ‘I believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God.'”
• “When is someone ready to be baptized?” Once a person admits that he or she is a sinner and turns to Christ for salvation, the Bible says that person should proclaim the life change that has occurred. You have given up on all effort to reach God through good works or religious activity. You recognize that the only way to bridge the gap between you and God is through Jesus Christ. If you have come to this point, you are ready to be baptized. Let the miracle that has happened on the inside of you come to public expression. We encourage you to take the next step and be baptized!
• “I was not a Christian when I was baptized, do I need to get baptized again?” Or maybe you were young and did not understand what was done to you. Baptism is an outward expression of an inward reality; as a very young child there tends to not be a clear understanding of the significance of baptism. It was meaningful to your parents, but not to you. Jesus was not real to you at that point in your life. Baptism should always follow salvation, and you were too young to understand salvation. Therefore, if you have not been baptized since receiving Christ, you need to be baptized! (Acts 2:41)
• “Why do we submerge instead of sprinkle?” The original word in the bible used for baptism speaks of dunking, immersion or dipping. Every reference to baptism in the Bible uses this word. We submerge because this is what was modeled for us in first century Christianity. (Acts 8:34-38)
