Baptismal Service

We will be having a Baptismal service September 29, 2019 during the morning service.  Please contact Pastor Nate if you want to be added to the list of Believers that would like to be baptized.

Christian baptism is the means by which a person makes a public profession of faith and discipleship. In the waters of baptism, a person says, wordlessly, “I confess faith in Christ; Jesus has cleansed my soul from sin, and I now have a new life of sanctification.”

Christian baptism illustrates, in dramatic style, the death, burial, and resurrection of Christ. At the same time, it also illustrates our death to sin and new life in Christ. As the sinner confesses the Lord Jesus, he dies to sin (Romans 6:11) and is raised to a brand-new life (Colossians 2:12). Being submerged in the water represents death to sin, and emerging from the water represents the cleansed, holy life that follows salvation. Romans 6:4 puts it this way: “We were therefore buried with him through baptism into death in order that, just as Christ was raised from the dead through the glory of the Father, we too may live a new life.”

Very simply, baptism is an outward testimony of the inward change in a believer’s life. Christian baptism is an act of obedience to the Lord after salvation; although baptism is closely associated with salvation, it is not a requirement to be saved. The Bible shows in many places that the order of events is 1) a person believes in the Lord Jesus and 2) he is baptized. This sequence is seen in Acts 2:41, “Those who accepted [Peter’s] message were baptized” (see also Acts 16:14–15).

A new believer in Jesus Christ should desire to be baptized as soon as possible. In Acts 8 Philip speaks “the good news about Jesus” to the Ethiopian eunuch, and, as they traveled along the road, they came to some water and the eunuch said, Look, here is water. What can stand in the way of my being baptized? (Acts 8:35–36). Right away, they stopped the chariot, and Philip baptized the man.

Baptism illustrates a believer’s identification with Christ’s death, burial, and resurrection. Everywhere the gospel is preached and people are drawn to faith in Christ, they are to be baptized.

How are we doing at fulfilling not just the ideals of our American forefathers but those universal values set in place by the one who made us in his image, who sent his only begotten son to secure our salvation, the one who created us in him to do good works?”  Roger Brady

Bible Tracts Inc. was founded in 1938 through the preaching of our founder, Evangelist Paul Levin. As people came to Christ, they wanted to be able to tell others how to be born again. As they saw the transforming power of the Gospel, they wanted clear, simple gospel tools so they too could see folks come to Christ.  Since its inception, millions of Gospel tracts have gone all over the world in various languages. All of these tracts have been provided entirely free of charge. Bible Tracts Inc. is supported by churches and individuals who have a desire to see the world come to Christ.
