What is Baptism?
Baptism is an outward demonstration of an inward change that God has done when we choose to follow Jesus. It is a symbol; as you go into the water you die to your old life and you come out of the water clean because of the saving grace offered by Jesus and entering into a new life with Him.
- Symbolizes God’s grace – Once you become a follower of Jesus, your sins are forgiven and you are given the grace of God. In baptism we see a symbol of God’s grace washing us clean from our old life.
- Symoblizes your new life – When you come out of the water you are symbolizing entering into a new life in Jesus. When you choose to believe in Jesus you choose to leave the life of evil and self-focus to a life with Jesus.
- Publicly declare Jesus is God of your life – You announce to others that you follow Jesus and choose Him to be your leader. Your life won’t be perfect, but each day you choose to follow.
What To Bring?
Plan to bring something to sit on (blanket or chair) for the service. After the service we will have a chance to gather with friends and family to continue the celebration. We will have pulled pork! The rest of the food will be potluck style, along with a free shaved ice food truck. What food should you bring? We divided it up by last name so we all don’t bring the same thing. If you are unable to bring food (or forget) no problem, come eat with us anyways!
