What is Baptism?

Following the teachings of Jesus Christ, the practice of baptism by immersion in water is offered to those who have come to faith in God through Jesus Christ. Baptism is an outward sign of an inward reality. Baptism symbolizes your belief in the death, burial and resurrection of Jesus for the forgiveness of sin and newness of life.

"Whoever believes 
and is baptized will be saved..."
--Mark 16:16
