When a person is baptised, they are identifying with Christ’s death, burial and resurrection. It is an outward demonstration of what has already taken place inwardly.
The word ‘baptise’ comes from a Greek word which means ‘to put under water so as to submerge and then to take out again’. In Christianity, water baptism is the physical act of being submerged under water after you have repented of your sin and confessed Jesus Christ as Lord. It expresses a deeper spiritual reality: that you have died to the power of sin and are living a new life in God. We have been granted access to this spiritual reality because we have placed our faith in Jesus, who died on the cross for our sins.
Our next Baptisms will be held on Sunday 22 August.
