Celebrate Your Life in Christ!
At City Church, we believe water baptism is a celebration of your decision to follow Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior. Just as wedding rings are a public declaration of a marriage covenant, water baptism is the outward declaration of the covenant you’ve made with God. As your church, we would like to stand with you as you publicly declare the decision you have made to surrender your life to the Lord.
Why do I need to be baptized?
Baptism symbolizes conversion to Jesus and should follow a confession of faith in Christ. It is your public and unashamed confession that you are leaving your old way of life to follow Him. Throughout the New Testament, We see Jesus, the apostles, and the early church practicing baptism. When someone would repent of their sins and turn to Jesus they would then immediately be baptized as an outward sign of the inward change that Jesus had done in their hearts. When you step out of the water, you are letting the world know that you have walked into a new life of faith in Jesus Christ and that you are committing to follow Jesus down a new path. Matthew 28:19, Acts 2:38, 8:35-38, Romans 6:1-4
Our next baptism service will be November 12th 2017
